gnome-terminal wrong charset (ANSI_X3.4-1986 not ISO-8859-1).


Hello.

My gnome-terminal has set ANSI_X3.4-1986 as its current locale. I want to permanently change it to ISO-8859-1. I can do it temporearly by choosing Terminal -> Set Character Encoding -> Western (ISO-8859-1). I added ISO-8859-1 myself. Can anybody please help me with this problem?

Thanks,
- omes

You want to set the deafult character encoding in the gnome terminal.
Here is a relaed issue:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/323706

Here's more direct...
http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome.../msg00200.html

Apparently unrelated issues can hold clues... like:
http://www.ncst.ernet.in/projects/in...i-HOWTO-3.html

Seems you can change encoding with the default locale - see man locale for details.

However, in general, it seems gnome dosn't want users setting up broken processes by changing the default encoding.

However: you question says "wrong charset". Are you sure it is the encoding you want to change? Perhaps you want to change the font (edit profile)? Though I admit that anything other than UTF-8 as default is odd ...
