Re: [K12OSN] character coding in icewm/nautilus

This may be obvious, but have you tried setting icewm to not start Nautilus at login (see the wiki for instructions), and then, once logged in, manually calling Nautilus to see what happens? I suspect you'll get the same result, that is, errors. But since Nautilus works under Gnome but not Icewm, you could then try to compare, say, library path environment variables of the two. My guess is that Gnome is loading a library that Nautilus uses that Icewm is not loading, and for whatever reason, Nautilus isn't smart enough to load it on it's own. You might try running ldd on nautilus, while using Icewm, to see if it reports any missing support files.

/I have K12LTSP 3.1.1 installed at home. I am trying to use icewm, but something strange happens. When I use icewm I get trouble with some international characters... æøå used in Norway. I have set my /etc/sysconfig/i18n to ISO-8859-1 since UTF-8 also causes problems. When I use KDE ot Gnome everything is fine, but not in icewm.

When I open a terminal and check Terminal->Character Coding it is set to ANSI_X3.4-1968 for some reason... If I manually set it to UTF-8 It works in that terminal, but not for any other programs.

What is this, and how can it be fixed? Doesn't icewm use the i18n variables?

I have not gotten any response on this one.. Perhaps more information is needed. I have looked into it and found that it is nautilus which is causing the problem. Nautilus uses another character coding in icewm than in Gnome for some reason... If I open my folders using Konqueror everything checks out fine. If I browse my files in icewm/nautilus I get an error saying invalid unicode for a lot of files. Again this does not happen in Gnome or KDE.

Is it possible to fix this? Or can I start IceWM without Nautilus - and use KDE for the desktop icons instead? Or is there perhaps another way?
