Koi8-r font problems.
I'm having problems using the Koi8-r character set. I'm learning
Russian currently so I decided to install the mueller dictionary for
The Mueller dictionary has been installed and working fine trough my
own dictd. However, the entries are in Koi8-r format, this shouldn't be
a problem because xfstt can generate koi8-r font mappings. So i've
modified /etc/init.d/xfstt to generate koi8-r font mappings.
If I run xterm -fn '-ttf-courier
new-medium-r-normal-regular-0-0-0-0-m-0-koi8-r', things are working
fine, the output of dict <word> appears in a russian font where
Konsole however doesn't seem to be able to use the koi8-r character
set. I use KControl to select the Courier New with koi8-r encoding for
Konsole, but it doesn't use that one. When I try to modify the font
within Konsole the Courier New koi8-r isn't even there!
Other KDE apps like KEdit, Kate aren't working either, when I open a
textfile encoded in koi8-r they won't display the Russian characters.
Only Konqueror shows them.
KDict seems to ignore the Russian characters from dictd alltogether,
only squares appear and pasting the output into a hexeditor reveals
that all russian characters are translated to 0x00.
Does anyone know how this is possible and how to fix it?
Thanks in advance,
