Description Jens Petersen 2001-12-03 07:27:36 UTC
Description of Problem:
gkrellm when started in (default) Japanese locale doesn't shows "mojibake"
instead of Japanese in intranslated fields.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.eucJP gkrellm

Actual Results:
As in description.

Expected Results:
Should display Japanese text correctly by default when started in a
Japanese locale.

Additional Information:
Under the config UI, going to Theme -> Fonts
and choosing "Load fonts as fontsets" and "Use alternative fonts..." and
using something like "-*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-" gives
Japanese output (albeit not in a very nice Japanese font).

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2002-06-24 09:42:52 UTC
Seems top work with the latest from Rawhide (as far as I can tell)

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2002-07-08 10:18:11 UTC
Perhaps, my report wasn't clear....
The text in question is the text in the krells themselves,
not the config window which displays Japanese fine.

Comment 3 Nakai 2002-08-28 14:23:05 UTC
The following is the patch to fix this.

This allows all font setting to .po files, and detect fontset
from locale for all CJK.

This does not include Chinese/Korean font settings though,
but actually there is no .po files for them.

Do you like the patch? Do you think it is a close -> won't fix?

Let's move to Fedora version of bug.
This bug still happens on FC2T2, LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8.

GTK+/Pango is not the magical word to fix i18n issue automatically,
 nor a medichine to heal bad hackers...
