Norwegian default locale not working correctly
Last modified: 2009-04-29 10:09:57 EDT
Description of problem:
If I start xterm from a gnome session I see this:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[kmaraas@localhost po-locations]$ xterm
Warning: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
And in that xterm I cannot type any accentuated chars like é á and so on. However, running with LC_ALL=nb_NO.UTF-8 xterm will make this work again. nb_NO.utf8 seems to be the default locale setting when choosing norwegian bokmål as the language for the distro. Or has this changed since I installed somehow?
Steps to Reproduce:
I think this was fixed in gdm recently:
2008-10-01 Ray Strode <firstname.lastname@example.org>
change codeset in locale to follow canonical
form so we end up with ".UTF-8" instead of
Nah, still seeing it here with current rawhide...
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
And it's still the same when starting xterm from gnome-terminal in rawhide today.
I'm still seeing this warning when I start xterm in today's rawhide. Is this something that's fixed if I reinstall? Leftover from my previous install which was many releases ago?
Sorry for the radio silence on this bug so far...
Yea, it's probably left over cruft from rawhide. We could in theory clean it out in GDM, but for now, you should be able to do:
rm -f ~/.dmrc
sudo gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/gdm --config-source=xml:readwrite:/var/lib/gdm/.gconf
to clean things back up to defaults.
