hello,

i've been having problems with ROX not displaying localised file names
properly.
i've just happened to stumble on this:
<http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.desktop.rox.user/6331>

i've checked /usr/local/bin/rox script and i've got to ask you..

why is rox setting CHARSET env.variable ?
this is from my ~/.login_conf :

        :charset=ISO-8859-2:\
        :lang=sk_SK.ISO8859-2:\

and this is from my env(1) :

LANG=sk_SK.ISO8859-2
LC_CTYPE="sk_SK.ISO8859-2"
LC_COLLATE="sk_SK.ISO8859-2"
MM_CHARSET=ISO-8859-2

first three are results of ~/.login_conf, the last one i don't know.
so it seems we don't have CHARSET (in FreeBSD).
i don't know why but ...

if CHARSET is really a requirement for rox (is it ??), i believe you
should first check if MM_CHARSET (or LC_CTYPE?) is defined and if it is
set CHARSET accordingly.
can we agree on this ??

please let me know your opinion.

with regards,

martin
