I had filed a bug (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157709) about this
for gimp-perl a couple months ago and hadn't heard back, but I'm looking for
some advice on how to further debug this issue as it may not even be gimp-perl
When I call the following pdb function with any non-ascii character in my perl
my $text_layer = gimp_text_fontname($img,-1,0,0,"test string ö", 0, TRUE, 14,
The function simply fails, and returns the following error
"gimp_text_fontname: procedural database execution failed at ..."
With no more useful information. Displaying the stack trace doesn't give me
any additional useful information as well. "gimp_text_get_extents_fontname"
gives a similar error with a non-ascii character, but another pdb function I
found that generates text - "script_fu_newsprint_text" actually seems to
succeed as it returns no error. Incidentally, I've experimented with different
fonts and characters, and can only comment that these characters were not
causing an error with Gimp 1.2. (I've tested this on Gimp 2.0.5, 2.2 for
GNU/Linux, Gimp Perl 2.0 and Pango 1.6.) Any advice on what to look at next
would be appreciated.
