Description Jens Petersen 2007-05-08 00:49:43 EDT
Description of problem:
When I run xemacs in Japanese, I see French text partly appearing in
initial help text.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 /usr/bin/xemacs -vanilla
2. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 /usr/bin/xemacs -help

Actual results:
1. see screenshot
2. outputs:

  Loading leim-list...

xemacs exiting.

Expected results:
1. No French in initial splash help text
2. help to appear in shell

> 1. No French in initial splash help text

French is displayed... well, because the Japanese startup screen code actually
contains French :P.  I don't speak nor write either, will report upstream. 
Unless you happen to know Japanese well enough to provide the translation?

> 2. help to appear in shell

After "xemacs exiting.", I see also 'Cannot open load file: "un-define"'; the
attached patch (for xemacs-packages-extra) appears to be one crude way of fixing
it for XEmacs >= 21.5, will send upstream too.

Here is a patch with Japanese translations.
I attached it as binary since I am not very sure what will happen to the
as plain text.	(Japanese is ISO2022-JP, French was already corrupted?)

Note this is based on the current
in xemacs-packages-extra-20061221-1.fc7.

But since according to cvs this file hasn't changed in the last couple of years
that should be fine I guess. :)

(Attachment 154375 [details] should be in iso2022-jp.)
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2007-05-08 22:10:19 EDT
Oh, if upstream prefers utf-8 encoding I am happy to provide it too.
Comment 9 Ville Skyttä 2007-05-21 07:49:09 EDT
Fixed in 20070427-1 in Rawhide, and both changes committed upstream too.  Thanks!
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2007-06-06 22:27:04 EDT
Maybe unrelated but when I ran xemacs in rawhide yesterday I noticed
some garbage/boxes in a couple of the entries on the menubar,
presumably fonts related - I guess until now the menu was not translated?

Do you want another bug for that?
Comment 11 Ville Skyttä 2007-06-07 10:16:42 EDT
Yes, please report all new bugs as such.

Anyway, I know that there are charset issues with the buffer tabs, but don't
remember encountering them in the menubar.
Comment 12 Jens Petersen 2007-06-13 01:37:27 EDT
Ok, no problem: I opened bug 243973 for the ja menubar issue.
