problems with greek chars..


hello everyone,
i run KDE, in slackware 10.2 and from control centre ->regional & accessibility -> keyboard layout, i have added keyboard support for greek (layout), el (keymap).. i have set the layout variant to 'basic'.
as far as fonts is concerned i copied all of my ntfs (winXP) partition fonts and installed them both in my personal fonts list and in administrator mode (ie system mode).

in case you are greek and know linux well i note that i do have a little problem that havent managed to solve. it is not in the scope of this email but if you can help me out i would mostly appreciate it. while i can type greek in all applications i can not type vowels with stress (tonos)! how is that even possible? to make things even more confusing i CAN type vowels with stress in mozilla firefox!!!

the reason i am wondering that is becasue i use qtDesigner to write a little application in greek and while i can input greek characters fine, if i restart the IDE i get -wherever there used to be greek chars - just ??????...
thanks in advance for your help

Run
Code:
locale
and change the LC_CTYPE variable to be the same as the LANG variable (e.g. el_GR.UTF-8):
export LC_CTYPE=el_GR.UTF-8
Take a look here for details.

Regards
