Description Aleksey Nogin 1999-01-14 08:47:49 UTC
When I start nxterm and switch keyboard into the Cyrillic
mode (I am using Xkb, it generate Cyrillic_* keysyms) and
start typing, rxvt would not react (as if nothing is typed).

When xterm, Netscape or gvim is started from the same shell,
cyrillics works fine.

I had the same problem in RedHat 5.1

In RH 5.2 I checked it with the following setup:


P.S. rxvt has the same problem (bug report #828) and as a
result, I can only use xterm.

The problem still exists when using XFree*

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 1999-03-22 22:19:59 UTC
I was able to fix this problem in xterm-color-1.1-10 (from RawHide) by
applying the following patch:

 #ifdef I18N
-       setlocale(LC_ALL, NULL);
+       setlocale(LC_ALL, "");

        ProgramName = argv[0];

(I will send the patch by e-mail too.)

color-xterm/nxterm is being obsoleted in Red Hat linux 6.0 by xterm,
which now does color just fine.
