Comment 1 Tammy Fox 2002-11-26 16:33:48 UTC
It looks like you might have a locale problem that prevents the application
from reading your log files. Please provide the output of the command 'echo
$LANG' and your /etc/sysconfig/i18n file.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-11-26 22:38:45 UTC
It's loading now, don't know why. But it prompts still warnings:

( Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib

( Gdk-WARNING **: can not set locale modifiers
sh: line 1: /usr/sbin/tux2w3c: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

echo $LANG :


/etc/sysconfig/i18n :


Comment 3 Tammy Fox 2002-12-12 19:27:55 UTC
I don't get that message when I set LANG to de_DE.utf8. You might have
an older version of Xlib that doesn't support UTF-8 locales.

I'm closing this bug since it starts for you and I can't reproduce it.
