[openSuSE 10.3] Problem with umlauts on console


Hi,

i configured my system to use the charset ISO-8859-15. I can type German umlauts on the console, but in localized messages (e.g. from ls), umlauts appear as question marks.

What could be wrong?

Yes, that is possible in kde if you did not choose any keyboard-layout (or US_English)
Go to kde kontrolcenter 'kcontrol'
Choose 'Regionaleinstellungen & Zugangs...' and x 'Tastaturlayots aktivieren'
choose German de in 'Belegung' and ad German de in 'Hinzufuegen'
and final 'Anwenden'
I hope this will solve it.

It also happens on the text console, though.
