ja menubar font/encoding problem
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
If the latest xemacs in fedora devel is run in ja_JP.UTF-8
the menubar is full of boxes and garbage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 xemacs
Menubar is has many corrupted characters.
Menubar to disable normally (in English or Japanese)
In F7 the menu displays normally in English.
With LANG set to ja_JP (or equivalently ja_JP.eucJP) the menubar
displays correctly in Japanese (though it is not 100% translated),
so it is probably a font/encoding problem. Maybe a Japanese unicode
bitmap font is required to display it correctly in ja_JP.UTF-8?
If it is hard to fix then I think just reverting to the English menu would
Curiously, on F7 x86_64 with 21.5.28-2.fc7, the menu bar with LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8
is garbage for me no matter if xemacs-packages-extra-20061221-1.fc7 or
20070427-1.fc8 from Rawhide is installed.
Are you running 21.5.28 on both F-7 and Rawhide? See also bug 145931, perhaps
related? But then again, we now do build with xfontset support, dunno if
--without-xfs would make any difference.
No, I was still running xemacs-21.5.27-8.fc7.x86_64.
You're quite right I see it also with xemacs-21.5.28-2.fc7.x86_64.
With xemacs the menubar is now in English which I think is fine
for most users.
