Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71305
scrolling prints blank for every non-ascii char
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
starting with limbo xmms has stopped displaying non-ascii chars in the scrolling
text of the main window. If you right-click on the tite and select 'File info'
you get the name correctly with non-ascii chars.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download and play the attached ogg
2. watch the scrolling song title
3. watch the title in the file info dialog
in the scrolling text all non-ascii chars are replaced by blank
the problem is reproducible in locales sv_SE.UTF-8 and en_US

the ugly gnome startup sound with swedish chars in title
It's almost certainly interpreting the file title as unicode. What locale are
you running in?
As i stated above the problem is reproducible in at least locales sv_SE.UTF-8
and en_US (which seems to default to ISO-8859-1). In the C locale (that has
charset ANSI_X3.4-1968, that is US-ASCII) no non-ascii characters gets
displayed, neither in the scrolltext or in the File info dialog, which is logical.
Confirmed and moved upstream here:
