Description of problem:
Gnome terminal displays the 7 charactor as umm...
(Sorrta a "A" with the middle line at the bottom)
instead of the "centered ." that other term's (console, xterm, etc) display
(note echo 7 | xxd gives 0000000: b70a ..)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. hit AltGr-.
3. You do have AltGr mapped, right?
Can you add information about your current locale (echo $LANG)?
I've tried it with en_US.iso885915 and en_GB (modified $GDM_LANG and restarted X).
Actually, I'm not really sure where $GDM_LANG is supposed to be set, so I set it
in ~/.i18n. I noted that /etc/profile.d/lang.sh overrides $LANG with $GDM_LANG,
but can't find where it gets $GDM_LANG from in the first place.
[root@blip etc]# grep GDM_LANG $(find) -c | grep -v :0$
But it's SET in none of these.
GDM_LANG is set by gdm.
Note that the default en_US locale is en_US.UTF-8 not iso885915;
the problem is possibly a mismatch where the X server is sending UTF-8.
Ok. for some, unknown reason, it wasn't setting $GDM_LANG to that- I selected
American English manualy and it did set $GDM_LANG (and thus $LANG) to
en_US.UTF-8, but it still mis-displaied the char.
as a side note, AltGr-. and Compose-.-. seem to both give the centered dot
(0xC2B7) in xterm, while in Gnome-terminal Compose-.-. gives 0xCB99 (a centered
dot) and AltGr-. does the 0xC2B7 ( The Wedge)
a few other things along the same vein that don't work are Non-Breaking space (
d compose-SPACE-SPACE d should be three non-whitespace letters) Compose-1-2
should give =, and Compose-1-4 should <.
The Compose-.-. in my previous message looks more raised then centered, but I'd
be willing to beleive that's a font thing.
This looks fixed now.
