This is the real issue - don't worry about the python path or the XDG config. Could you run: $ python -c "import locale; print locale.getpreferredencoding()" I suspect that it will return empty - if so apparently on your system python has no idea what locale settings you are using. Typically should be something like "UTF-8". Replacing line 742 by: return string.decode('utf-8') should fix it in that case (mind the line indenting) Regards, Jaap _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
