Description Jiшн Navrбtil 2005-01-01 03:13:02 UTC
I would recommend a small change in nls/locale.alias file to
help czech people when using locale set to cs_CZ.iso8859-2, i.e. replace
cs_CZ.iso88592 with cs_CZ.iso8859-2 or add a new line with cs_CZ.iso8859-2 .

Thank you.

cs:                                             cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
cs_CS:                                          cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
cs_CS.ISO8859-2:                                cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
cs_CZ:                                          cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
-cs_CZ.iso88592:                                 cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
+cs_CZ.iso8859-2:                                cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
cs_CZ.ISO-8859-2:                               cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
cs_CZ.ISO_8859-2:                               cs_CZ.ISO8859-2

I'm not sure, for what is used this line from the same file:

Czech_Czech Republic.1250:                      cs_CZ.iso8859-2

For cs_CZ.iso8859-2 is now reised warning message "locale not supported
in Xlib" and we can not type some czech chars (reason for creating
in this bug). Is it correct, that the standard for Czech Republic
is cs_CZ.iso8859-2. But the  Windows CP-1250 set is for Windows and
is different.

Can you check whether the patch is OK for you, please ?

Actually in some cases, the codeset name ISO88592 is being used as an alias to
ISO 8859 Part 2 and so I think removing the line isn't really necesssary but
having the line like the following (as suggested by Jiri) should be okay and
necessary to support the Czech locale, cs_CZ.ISO8859-2:

    cs_CZ.iso8859-2: cs_CZ.ISO8859-2
