[debian-devel:11717] Re: kterm turns kanji to ascii when I press return.
Hi. I found this from "buggy packages" page on qa.debian.org
# kterm has score 29 by this one bug
Anyway, the report said:
| Date: Fri, 20 Mar 1998 11:19:47 -0800 (PST)
| From: Benjamin Redelings I <bredelin@xxxxxxxx>
| Package: kterm
| Version: 6.2.0-8
| By default, both "Japanese EUC mode" and "Shift-JIS mode" are turned
| off. kinput2, canna, and wwn appear to work correctly with the default
| settings. However, after I have typed a line, (for example: echo
| "<WATASHI>.", where the <WATASHI> is kanji) then when I press return,
| strange things happen. Firstly, the line itself changes from kanji to
| ascii characters (specifically: B;d!#B). Secondly, bash types
| echo "B;d$Oecho "B;d$OB"
| and it then asks for further input because the quotes do not match.
I don't check the second problem ("bash types the string twice and asks
for further input") but checked the first problem happens when $HOME/.Xresources
does not set "KTerm*kanjiMode: euc" (this enables "-km euc" as the default)
I don't know why this setting is enbled by default resource,
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-default/KTerm. This file has the entry
as the (commented out) default setting. It may be the upstream's
default, but since this package is used in Debian, I think
the default setting should be changed for better use with
the related packages in Debian.
The de facto standard locale for Japanese language on Debian
is ja_JP.ujis (or ja_JP.eucJP for woody), so we should have
here, for the better coordination with the kinput2/skkinput or else.
| Also, if I try to type some kanji and some ASCII on the same line, the
| kanji changes to ascii junk when I change to ASCII-entry mode with
| kinput2. All of these problems go away if I turn on SJIS mode or EUC mode
| in kterm. Is it necessary to turn one of these modes on by default? If
| so, then perhaps the kterm installation should set the mode in the
| .Xdefault file (or some other file?) when it is installed.
| OK, thats all. Thank you very much for all the good Japanese packages and
| cwnn and kwnn :)
Are there any harmful effect with having this "*VT100*kanjiMode: euc"
in the default resource file for kterm ? Any comment ?
