Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 829
nxterm is not properly localized
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
When I start nxterm and switch keyboard into the Cyrillic
mode (I am using Xkb, it generate Cyrillic_* keysyms) and
start typing, rxvt would not react (as if nothing is typed).
When xterm, Netscape or gvim is started from the same shell,
cyrillics works fine.
I had the same problem in RedHat 5.1
In RH 5.2 I checked it with the following setup:
P.S. rxvt has the same problem (bug report #828) and as a
result, I can only use xterm.
The problem still exists when using XFree*188.8.131.52-1
I was able to fix this problem in xterm-color-1.1-10 (from RawHide) by
applying the following patch:

(I will send the patch by e-mail too.)

color-xterm/nxterm is being obsoleted in Red Hat linux 6.0 by xterm,
which now does color just fine.
