Debian :: Set Default Character Encoding In Gnome-terminal?

Dec 30, 2010

I try to change the default character encoding in gnome-terminal. I want to use UTF8, but every gnome-terminal i start uses "ANSIX3.4-1968".

In the menu, when i go in Terminal => Set character encoding i have a list with two items:
[x] Current Locale (ANSIX3.4-1968)
[ ] Unicode (UTF-8)

I don't know why the first item appears, i have another debian box and it has only the UTF-8 encoding available. I cannot remove the first item in "add or remove" sub menu !! Probably because it is related to "current locale"

Here is the output of "locale", if it can helps:
boulzor@antec:~$ locale

Fedora :: Change XFCE4 Character Encoding?

Jun 28, 2009

I am experiencing some difficulties accessing some of my drives which have folders/files whose names include special characters. That problem has appeared just now, in Fedora 11, and just in XFCE4 (it somehow got stuck with the English default). In neither GNOME nor KDE happens.

The problem is not narrowed down to Thunar because even the terminal fails to recognize the special characters in XFCE4.

I guess that is simply solved by editing some configuration file, but I can't seem to find it.

What do I need to do to allow XFCE4 recognize special characters?

EDIT: It's definitely XFCE4, because if I open Thunar or xterm from GNOME, they recognize special-characters-filenames very well.

Fedora Servers :: Apache And Character Encoding Using UTF-8?

Oct 14, 2009

I am having a problem with my web server. On index.html, it should say "Welcome to my website! More coming soon!" but instead, in Firefox, if I go through my server by going to or localhost, it shows this:


I know it isn't the file, because the file looks normal if I open it by going to /var/www/html/index.html I looked at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and it says that it is using UTF-8, which I'm pretty sure is normal. I don't remember it doing this before I installed kdewebdev and ran Quanta Plus, although I have no idea how it could have caused this. Has this happened to anyone else?

Fedora :: Change Character Encoding In Either 12 Or PCBSD?

Feb 10, 2010

I have two machines in a local network and want to share files among them. Since I don't want to bother configuring NFS right now I am using ssh and scp to transfer files among them. There is a little problem though: the machines have different *nixes. One machine has Fedora 12 (Spanish) and the other one has PCBSD 7.1.1 (English).The problem is that both machines have different character encoding and while the Fedora machine can perfectly handle names with special characters, the BSD machine can't and in fact upon doing ssh to the Fedora machine filenames (with special characters) appear wrong and prove difficult to work with.

Ubuntu :: Get Gedit To Guess At Character Encoding?

Jun 11, 2010

In W7 and WXP when you tried to open an image or non-text file using notepad, the software would guess at the character encoding and show a bunch of gibberish. this allowed you to edit the image to make it corrupt or (what I am trying to do) hide a message or text within an image file and still have the image display. Is there any way to do this with gedit or another text editor in the repositories? I'd prefer to not use a command line text editor such as vim or emacs.

General :: Server Character Encoding - Install?

Mar 15, 2010

General :: Start Server With GUI (kde/gnome) To Terminal By Default?

Jun 13, 2011

I've set up home server, which doesn't have to be as powerful as other servers, so I decided to install GUI because of applications that are alternatives to classical GUI applications in headless version requires more skill/knowledge. However, I don't want server to run GUI always at start (which gnome-desktop package does). I need some configuration in KDE/gnome/xfce (haven't decided) that doesn't start GUI after each start (e.g is required to type startx or equivalent command to start GUI)(off topic: can you also recommend good remote-administration with GUI transport ?)

General :: Removing SCIM Input Method As Default From Gnome Terminal?

Feb 16, 2010

While I can find my way around most things, terminals and desktop managers are different than I remember. One of the biggest problems that I am encountering today is that when running a gnome terminal (this is Suse 10.0 enterprise), I'm getting behavior in the window that I don't want. Specifically, when I type, my typing is underlined as if something is trying to spell check my window. Further, it seems as if when running vi or less, my keystrokes are only processed by these apps when I hit 'return'. I.e. if I'm running less and want to go back a page, I'll hit b, but nothing happens until I hit 'return'.

I seem to have tracked this down to the 'input method". Right clicking in the Gnome terminal allows me to set my input method to one of a dozen values. It seems that currently, it's set to "SCIM Input Method". If I then select 'default' or 'X Input Method', apps (i.e. things like less, vi, and even the bash shell) behave as I would expect.

a) what is this SCIM input method

b) how can I make it so that it is not the default?

I've poked around various configuration files in my home directory as well as in /etc, but I can't see to find how this is set.

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

Ubuntu :: Default Volume To 100% In Terminal With Gnome-volume-control-applet?

Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.

When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.

Debian :: Gnome-terminal's Looks Screwed Up?

Jun 28, 2011

At first, all seemed normal on the gnome-terminal except for the scroll bar but my theme settings don't seem to have changed. I guess that's because, they haven't as I can see in programs like iceweasel where all is normal.I am using testing/wheezy. I tried removing /home/deniz/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal and restarting my computer but that did not work. Did an update screw things up or what? How do I bring things back to normal?

Debian :: How To Work With Tabs In New Gnome-terminal

Sep 24, 2015

After going Debian 8 (with Kali 2) I can no longer use my pre-defined tabs because apparently some genius decided that gnome-terminal no longer needs that kind of functionality (ie. tabs.)I really need my tabs back so I installed a pre 3.11 version that worked with tabs and profiles like this (see below) but that caused other problems.

Code: Select allgnome-terminal --tab-with-profile=Titleable -t "sami" -e "byobu" --tab-with-profile=Titleable -t "root" -e "sudo -i screen -dRRS sami" --tab-with-profile=Titleable -t "samimox1" -e "ssh root@samimox1 -t screen -dRRS main"

Can I install older gnome-terminal side-by-side the "new and improved" version? Or is there a way to get tab profiles to work with the new one?

Debian Multimedia :: Transparency With Gnome-Terminal ?

Feb 25, 2010

When I was running it before, that was Debian as well, I was able to make my gnome-terminal window decorations completely transparent and/or gone - so the terminal appeared to be typing directly on the desktop.

The method I used before to accomplish this was pretty straightforward, these options could be found in the actual terminal's interface and menu options.

However, now, I get the following result:
