Exclamation While working on Fedora10,unable to print double Quotes


I am unable to type double quotes in first hit in VI editor.i need to press twice to get it printed once.
i also get the same problem in all applications of fedora 10. the same problem with single quotes. Even then while compiling C-programs (using gcc compiler) it shows the following errors-----------:

#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf(¨hello world¨);

}

[Pratik@localhost ~]$ gcc 1.c
1.c: In function ‘main’:
1.c:5: error: stray ‘\302’ in program
1.c:5: error: stray ‘\250’ in program
1.c:5: error: ‘hello’ undeclared (first use in this function)
1.c:5: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
1.c:5: error: for each function it appears in.)
1.c:5: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘world’
1.c:5: error: stray ‘\302’ in program
1.c:5: error: stray ‘\250’ in program
[Pratik@localhost ~]$

Hi,

And welcome to LQ!

While I don't have fedora, and can't reproduce your issues (or tell you
how to fix it) it looks like a locale-issue; what does your environment
say about language encodings, fonts and the likes?

It almost appears as if those chars (" and ') are being entered as some
funky unicode (\250) which the compiler doesn't know how to handle.


Cheers,
Tink

I think you're right, Tink.
When I cut and paste the code for 1.c The "quotes" come out as a kind of German umlaut without the vowel underneath and not as quotes. When I replace the so-called quotes with quotes entered from my own keyboard the compilation goes correctly.
cheers,
jdk

I have Fedora running (several versions up to Fedora 10 on different PC's) and this is certainly not a typical Fedora as I have never run into it. It seems that keyboard input is messed up somehow and produces multi-byte input.
