Your Greek locale setup is messed up. I don't know why you have all these, but if they are in your ~/.bashrc or something remove them all and use something like this: # Locale setup. export LANG="C" export LC_CTYPE="el_GR.ISO8859-7" export LC_COLLATE="el_GR.ISO8859-7" unset LC_ALL LC_MESSAGES LC_MONETARY LC_NUMERIC LC_TIME Your locale setup looks very close to what I've seen on Linux systems, but the set of LC_xxx environment variables you have now is _not_ going to work with FreeBSD. > Moreover although i can read greek on konqueror and opera i > cannot do so on Kwrite or i cannot read greek filenames on the > desktop, eventhough ei can give greek names on files whithout > accents ofcourse. Random problems with accents are very often a hint that points towards invalid/wrong locale setup. Fix your environment *before* you start X11, make sure that you don't override the fixed environment in your X11 configuration with something else, and you should be set to go :) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
