Description of problem:
iso-8859-15 not supported in gnome-terminal. Since I installed redhat-7.1,
I can't get the euro sign (\xa4 in ASCII). I can't figure if it is a
XFree86, a xfs, or a gnome ptoblem. I tried to correct the three of them
Steps to Reproduce:
1.startx (with gnome and sawfish
2.start gnome-terminal (with police
Actual Results: no way: it's iso8859-1, not iso8859-15
Expected Results: since Redhat7.0 (or upgrades for XFree?) I got the euro
sign with AltGr+$
I couldn't get it either with other xtems (or friends) before. I mean it
only worked with gnome-terminal.
What locale are you using?
My locale is fr_FR
Havoc, is this a known GNOME or GNOME-term bug? Or do you think it
is XFree related or perhaps just a local config issue?
Go to gnome-terminal prefs, turn off "Enable multibyte support."
8-bit fixed-width encodings don't work by default in 7.1, because
we turned on Japanese support by default instead. So you have to flip the setting.
Thanks a lot!
