en_US UTF-8 doesnt show them right :'(

O.S. and all installed programs are in english [so i dont want to switch
locales to tr_TR], but sometimes i need the above native characters.
what should i do to see such characters correctly ?
many thanks in advance.


en_US is english .. utf-8 by itself doesn't mean anything
its usually gonna be  xx_yy.utf-8 and other case sensitive variables

you have to set the proper LC variables ( a couple of the dozen+
variables ) if you want a mixture of some characters and not others ...
and probably its keyboard dependent too

c ya
