Thank you! This applied cleanly on vdr 1.4.5, and unlike the previous
version, this one works with the freetype libs in Debian unstable.
Do you have a script for translating the /video directory from latin1
to utf8? I attach my script for this, also available from
http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/software/misc/. Am I right that the
info.vdr files need to be translated as well? The attached script
recodes the contents of all files named 00INDEX. I guess that you
could replace 00INDEX with info.vdr in the script and be all set.
I'll test that as soon as I can.
One small suggestion: could you check for the availability of the fonts
at startup? I initially only copied arialbd.ttf and arial.ttf, and
got a crash later when courbd.ttf was not available.
find . -name '*[-ÿ]*'\
|while read FILE
do mv "$FILE" "`echo "$FILE"|recode latin1..utf8`"
find . -type f -name 00INDEX -print0|LANG=C xargs -0 grep -lE '[-ÿ]'\
|tr '\012' '\0'|xargs -0 recode latin1..utf8
