Subject: messages from GNU screen always in English
It seems that regardless of my locale (LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8,
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8, LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8, etc), messages from GNU screen are
always in English.
Has anyone else noticed this, or am I doing something wrong?
For the record, the following briefly illustrates what I do (for
$ export LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 ; screen # set locale for tty and start screen
$ exit # quit screen session
[screen is terminating]
The termination message above illustrates the unexpected behavior I am
Also for the record:
$ locale -a
(By contrast, screen's ":time" command *does* obey the locale, though
it displays non-ascii characters incorrectly, and as far as I know
that is a different issue, possibly worth another thread.)
