Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75560
Problem with workbooks containing norwegian characters
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
gnumeric-1.0.9-2 has problems showing fxe from excel workbooks. It truncates any
8-bit chars in norwegian when running with the default locale. Running with
LC_ALL=no_NO "fixes" it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is much more likely to get fixed if also filed on bugzilla.gnome.org
(Even better, ideally gnumeric 2 will be out by our next release.)
Heh. Obviously bugzilla has problems with 8-bit chars too. Anyway, I don't think
that making gnumeric utf8 aware is going to happen in 1.0.x. Any other ways to
"fix" this for 8.0? Maybe making a FAQ with these kinds of things would be good?
On the other hand, some of the "legacy" gtk apps seem to have been fixed before
the release if I remember correctly - or maybe that was just the strings in the gui?
I don't really know how hard it would be to fix - maybe it's simple and Jody
could patch it up easily, maybe it's just a bug to be documented... hard to know.
I think it's fair to say if upstream fixes this it will be fixed,
otherwise no, so let's just move it to gnome.org.
