It seems that regardless of my locale (LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8, LANG=de_DE.UTF-8, LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8, etc), messages from GNU screen are always in English. Has anyone else noticed this, or am I doing something wrong? For the record, the following briefly illustrates what I do (for example): $ export LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 ; screen # set locale for tty and start screen $ exit # quit screen session [screen is terminating] The termination message above illustrates the unexpected behavior I am talking about. Also for the record: $ locale -a C C.UTF-8 de_DE.utf8 en_US.utf8 fr_CA.utf8 fr_FR.utf8 POSIX ru_RU.utf8 (By contrast, screen's ":time" command *does* obey the locale, though it displays non-ascii characters incorrectly, and as far as I know that is a different issue, possibly worth another thread.) -- The day will come | Last words, August Spies (1855--1887).
