accented letters in OpenOffice


Hi all,

I'm not able to configure OpenOffice so I can input accented letters ( ). I can write them in any other software, and even when I write incorrectly a word, OO corrects it putting the needed accented letters.

I've searched through all the config I've found but I don't know what can be the problem.

Any clues? Thanks a lot!!

Run:
Code:
locale
and if the LC_CTYPE value is different from LANG then use the LANG's value (I guess something like es_ES) for LC_CTYPE also.

Regards

Thanks a lot man!!

angel@asterix:~$ locale
LANG=POSIX
LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=

How can I change that values? Guess I should put es_ES as you say.

Temporarily you can set them by:
Code:
export LANG=es_ES
export LC_CTYPE=es_ES
or perhaps es_ES.UTF-8 (depends on distro)
Test if you can write accented letters in OO and if yes put them into your .bashrc or .profile or whatever file initialize your login shell.

mmm no. Closed and reopen OO it's the same.

what about those errors that appear now? Do they say something to you?

angel@asterix:~$ locale

You might take a look at this to see if you have correctly installed the locale related stuff.
