Description semerad 2016-10-12 21:27:35 UTC
from libX11-1.6.4 there is line:


in file nls/locale.dir.pre. But file cs_CZ.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE is empty
and xterm shows "locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C" and
no international characters are working.
  I think it should be returned to en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE or file
cs_CZ.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE should contain working content. I tried the
first variant and it is working for me.

Another thing is that locale cs_CZ.UTF-8 is inluded two times in file
nls/locale.dir.pre and it was there in previous versions also.

That attachment does not contain a patch, just a description of what a patch
might do.

Created attachment 127670 [details] [review]

I accidentally wrote the description into "File: Paste the text to be added as an attachment" form field.

The patch reverts the nls/locale.dir.pre change.

This isn't a duplicate of 81875, it's a regression caused by that bug.
