#15816 closed defect (duplicate)

Local characters shown incorrectly

Reported by: tower9 Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.10.7 Keywords:


On windows, when I type local characters "ēŗūīōāšģķļžčņ" (Latvian), Pidgin shows them as "éŕúíóáśǵḱĺźćń". If I type them in notepad, copy and then paste them in Pidgin, they are displayed correctly. Tried other fonts, but that doesn't help, with some of fonts, these characters are displayed as boxes. Installed with Pidgin setup from SourceForge?.

Closed as duplicate of #8244.
This is an issue with the GTK+ input method handling and not something that Pidgin itself is doing.

There have been some recent improvements in the GTK+ codebase for this type of thing that we need to look into.
