FuryBSD Xfce locale UTF-8

Post by alastair »

Hello All.

Thank you for the lovely work on FuryBSD.

I have installed the Xfce version of FuryBSD, I have upgraded it to version 12.1-RELEASE.-p2.

I am having problems setting the charset to UTF-8. I have edited both /etc/login.conf & ~/.login_conf.

When I use the terminal emulators there are no locale settings.

Where should I set the locale settings and are there any sample files ?

Alastair.

Hi,

What worked for me (I'm French) :

-in /etc/login.conf
french|French Users Accounts:\
:charset=UTF-8:\
:lang=fr_FR.utf-8:\
:tc=default:

-cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf

-vipw
insert french between :: on the last line where the user appears (after 1001:1001)

-in .profile
LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
MM_CHARSET=UTF-8
LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE=POSIX
export LANG MM_CHARSET LC_ALL LC_COLLATE

Good luck !
