currently use iso8859-1 font for non-utf8 menu items (gnome and
/etc/X11/applnk), while must use font in `locale charmap` encoding (KOI8-R in my

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. set LANG=ru_RU.koi8r
2. start kde
3. select Russia, Russian language

Actual Results:

All gnome menu items will be displayed by iso-8859-1 characters.

Expected Results:

For gnome menu must be used the same font which is used for native kde menu
items (cyrillic characters in this case)
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-28 07:58:00 EST
This is because GNOME doesn't honor the desktop files standard, which clearly 
states desktop files must use UTF-8 encoding.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-28 08:47:24 EST
No it doesn't state that. It states that .desktop files may use either UTF-8 or
Legacy-Mixed encoding. Read the spec.
Comment 3 Leonid Kanter 2002-04-06 12:43:33 EST
I'm unable to reproduce the bug in beta4 (kdebase-3.0.0-3). Everything is OK
with GNOME menu.
