No scandinavic letters? ()


I have a problem with scandinavic letters ().
I have had Mandrake and everything worked fine but after I installed Redhat 9 I have not been able to read files that have scandinavic letters in their names, and those letters don't show right even in Konqueror. The only thing that shows them right is Mozilla.

You will have to add support for your language in the file
/etc/sysconfig/i18n

Mine looks like this
Code:
LANG="en_US"
SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en:sv_SE.UTF-8:sv_SE:sv"
Since I primarily use english in X, but still wanna support swedish output.

Haven't had any problems with it since I added this.

Aha, I guess that's a smarter way than what I did. I changed my SYSFONT in the i18n:

LC_TELEPHONE=en_US
LC_CTYPE=en_US
LANGUAGE=en_US:en
LC_MONETARY=en_US
LC_ADDRESS=en_US
LC_COLLATE=en_US
LC_NAME=en_US
LC_PAPER=en_US
LC_NUMERIC=en_US
SYSFONT=lat1-16
LC_TIME=en_US
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US
LANG=en_US
LC_MESSAGES=en_US
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_US

Cheers - eller kanske: ha det!

'

Where do you get the list of abbreviations from ?? I want to add Danish/Spanish/Portugese/French and Russian support.

OK, I'm stepping around here like an elephant. Don't worry, I'm soon finished.

I also installed RedHat 8 after using Mandrake 6 for a long time and all my accented characters in the names of my old files were wrong. But I realized this might be because the form of storing these characters changed. The names in my old files seem to be stored in 8 bits while newer names seem to be stored with a two byte sequence.

When I look at my old files from the newer distribution, there seem to be missing letters or "?". When I look at a new file from the old Mandrake, the characters appear with another code page and a "" before them.

So I guess these two systems are incompatible and the only way to get them right is by running some renaming script.
