Language support


I have a linux server , it default language is English , the i18n settting is as below .

LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"

SUPPORTED = en_GB.UTF-8:en_GB:en


Now , when I use the program "txt2pdf" to convert text file to pdf , but I can't read the germany character , the germany becomes mess character ( the windows is germany regional ) .

Can advise if I want to read the germany on pdf file , what I need to do ? does I need to change LANG in i18n , or do I need to change anything on the linux server ?

Thanks.

Can you tell me if the broken characters would be those containing accents, dieresis of any kind and such?

To render a pdf you need a font, unlike on a txt file, so the problem could be in the font you (or txt2pdf) use by default, which might not implement the required glyphs. I don't think that your locale settings have anything to do here. But admittedly, I have no experience with txt2pdf.

Part of these accents & dieresis could normally display , but part of it because broken charcaters.
