Description onur Yalaz} 2002-11-21 02:37:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
gedit 2.0.0 in tr_TR.utf8  locale 
can not be used because menu labels as well as preferences box labels shows
strange charecters instead of usable text

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.nothing just open gedit 2.0.2

Actual Results:  The app is unusable.

Expected Results:  Menus should use some understandable text

Additional info:

I ve downloaded and compiled i386.src rpm of gedit 2.0.2 
but this strange bug still exists.

But if started with 

         env LANG=en_US gedit %U or 
         env LANG=en_US.utf8 gedit %U 

the labels are ok.

The problem is perhaps a lack of Turkish fonts. 
Is this problem specific to gedit or does it happen with all text
on the system? If some applications display Turkish correctly, 
which applications are they?

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-11-21 02:55:44 UTC
From the screen shots it also looks possible that the turkish translations 
are simply in the wrong encoding.

Comment 4 onur Yalaz} 2002-11-21 02:59:38 UTC
well i have just found out that the po file that's on gnome2.0 gtp site is in
TAMIL languge instead of Turkish. also this file is included with gedit2.0.2-5
src rpm
I ve just posted a bug report to gtp also.

I'm assuming this should be fixed in our newer gedit packages in rawhide.
If not, get the fix into GNOME upstream translation project, and 
we'll get the newer gedit packages with the fix.
