Description jack_mort 2005-04-04 11:11:02 UTC
When using xclock in digital mode, specifying some strftime format, it's always
using english.

See here for a patch : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=259423
Comment 1 Alan Coopersmith 2005-04-04 11:23:50 UTC
Have you tried Xorg CVS head since I putback this fix which I think also 
fixes this?   (It went in post-6.8.0 and hasn't been pulled into 6.8.1 or 6.8.2
so is only in CVS head right now.)

	* xc/programs/xclock/Imakefile,Clock.c,ClockP.h,xclock.c:
	Internationalize digital output (Sun bug id #4119396 - fix by
	Steve Swales),  add -bgpixmap option to set XPM file as background
	(originally from STSF project version of xclock by Alan Coopersmith)

It includes a setlocale(LC_ALL,"") as well as changes to handle other character

Sorry, I didn't try CVS. I'm with 6.8.2 so as you say, it seems this patch was
forgotten :-(

I'll wai for next release and "reopen" the bug if the patch is still not
included ;-)

Comment 3 Alan Coopersmith 2005-05-15 13:11:08 UTC
Marking as fixed, since the change in HEAD should cover it.
