jf: Is setting the $LC_ALL var really necessary??? It would seem (at least on my system) that it's not. All i have to do is run locale-gen, and set LOCALE in /etc/rc.conf, and that's it. What do u guys think?

Just ignore this article. The part at the top is ok, but the .bashrc stuff is a bit misleading. byte 21:46, 13 October 2006 (EDT)

This should be more to the point now. byte 19:09, 13 October 2006 (PDT)

jf: ah, ok, thanks, byte....

"invalid charset name"

hello ppl, I was having this error message while trying to access man pages and running less, it turns out that the LESSCHARSET environment variable does not recongnize utf if it is written like 'utf8' it will only work if you write it like 'UTF-8' hope it helps!


.bashrc is only used by interactive bash sessions, right? So that if you login with KDM in KDE (or GDM gnome), the whole KDE session will inherit the locale set by init->KDM and will not use the one set in .bashrc!

I guess a "source ~/.bashrc" in ~/.xprofile would solve this.
