Re: LANG=fr_FR /usr/bin/nedit and accentuated characters

Remove "nodeadkeys" from the Xorg.conf and you are done.

I am using german, french and turkisch and
have had never problems with NEdit...

 I don't have this option enabled in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

So what am I doing wrong ?
I also tried with luit:
   LANG=fr_FR luit /usr/bin/nedit <file>
Since you are using UTF-8 you have choosen the wrong locale since fr_FR
is the same as iso-8859-1 (without €).

You should use

    LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 /usr/bin/nedit <file>

and you are done

Sorry, but experiences show you're wrong:
My system locale is already fr_FR.UTF-8, so your code
	LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 /usr/bin/nedit <file>
has really really no effects !

Moreover, it works (a little) this ways:
	LANG=fr_FR /usr/bin/nedit <file>
but *only in he first nedit's tab*: try to open a new file in a second tab and type ¨+i : do you get an ï or ¨i ?
This is with nedit installed by apt-get/aptitude@stable/testing/sid.

Nowadays, I use the binary tar.gz package provided by nedit.org.
All character encoding stuff are ok.
Just a little problem: window redrawing operations are really slow (a few seconds for a tens of opened files in NEdit, really boring in a multi desktop env...)

Best regards.
