Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 82288
non-ascii broken in some gdm texts
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
When I set the system language to swedish (sv_SE.UTF-8) some translated messages
on the login screen have broken non-ascii characters. More specifically the
UTF-8 string from the translations file is treated as an ISO-8859-1 string and
what should have been an å is now displayed as two bogus characters.
This does not apply to all texts in the gdm screen. The translation to 'Please
enter your username' gets translated correctly. 'Welcome to $HOST' and
'Language' are broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-184.108.40.206-1 (phoebe 8.0.93)
seems to be always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set system language to Swedish
2. Log out
borken ä ö and å in some texts on the gdm login screen
properly recognized non-ascii

Please make #8168 a duplicate of this bug instead, or move that bug from Red Hat
Linux beta to Red Hat Public Beta.
I get this message from bugzilla:
"You are not permitted to edit bugs in product Red Hat Linux Beta."
when I try to edit that one.
fyi redhat-artwork 0.60 doesn't solve the problem for me
