vt-is-UTF8 gives error
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
run vt-is-UTF8 in a gnome-terminal (us ascii english install) and you get:
[jlquinn@hornet common]$ vt-is-UTF8
is_in_UTF8_mode: Invalid argument
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
As both the package name and the application name indicate, vt-is-UTF8 works
only with virtual terminals (meaning ttys -- text mode).
It was never meant to run in X, and can't. The kernel doesn't know anything
about X terminal emulation.
