Console does not set i18n fon on login properly
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:30:42 EDT
Loaded i18n font is lost on console after logout/login. /sbin/setsysfont solve
the problem (should be manually run by logged-in user) but isn't ~/.i18n aware.
Tested on Null-7.3.94
Set any any non-8859-1 font in /etc/sysconfig/i18n and try to use i18n
charater. Then logout, login and try again. Console has ASCII charset now.
i18n support is almost unusable at this point because /etc/profile.d/lang.*
call unicode_start without parameters.
Please fix /etc/profile.d/lang.* to use unicode_start with parameters as
setsysfont already does:
unicode_start $SYSFONT $SYSFONTACM
Please fix /sbin/setsysfont to use ~/.i18n as /etc/profile.d/lang.sh already
Hmm, maybe setsysfont is for system use only so ~/.i18n isn't needed. Sorry.
But /etc/profile.d/lang.* should call unicode_start with parameters still.
Fixed in CVS, should be in 6.93-1.
Current RawHide seems to be OK. Thank you.
