Mangled characters in non UTF8 locales
Last modified: 2010-03-16 13:13:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Menues broken with non UTF8 locales
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LC_ALL=fr_FR@euro virt-manager
all accented characters look wrong in the menu (crossed boxes instead of characters)
display of accented characters
Same is true for german umlauts with de_DE@euro, de_DE@UTF-8 and fr_FR@UTF-8
work fine. This is on Debian Lenny.
...and when using iso8859-2 this even leads to a crach. See:
Is this even really virt-manager related? Any segfault would have to be at the C level, so my guess is this is a gtk, glade, or some other library issue. Truthfully I'm not to savvy on this stuff so I wouldn't even know what to do in the first place.
Closing as CANTFIX, but please reopen if you think this is something defficient with virt-manager.
