[ bug ] Problem with encoding and accentuated letters in xfce terminal

Benoit Chesneau-3
I have no accentuated letters, no characters appear when I type it in Terminal
even if LC_TYPE is set to fr_FR.ISO8859-15 :
(Terminal:29560): Vte-WARNING **: Error (Illegal byte sequence) converting data
for child, dropping.

If I set LC_ALL to same encoding it works. However if I set LC_ALL or LC_TYPE
to en_US.UTF-8 i get the same error.

Here is a ktrace dump :

I also opened a bug report on xfce website :
http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3301

Regards.


Benoît

The environment variable is called "LC_CTYPE", not "LC_TYPE"...

bug I will make more diff with current working configuration .

Thanks for your help.
