The problem is not recent but also not since I used Manjaro. It’s been at least a year with several major upgrades since then.
If I download any file that contains any Arabic characters, the file name becomes just
download - no extension. I can still rename it to Arabic letters and it will save, but the file won’t open.
Even if the file is non-Arabic named BUT the path contains any Arabic directory or grand-parent-directory, the file won’t open.
- Downloading tested with: Google Chrome, Chromium, and Mozilla Firefox
- Files managers tested: the default Dolphin, PCManFM, Deepin File Manager
- Kernel: 5.15.41-1-MANJARO
- Desktop: KDE Plasma v: 5.24.5
- WM: KWin
All other aspects of the language, i.e., reading files, typing, etc., are fine. No issues.
I see this warning:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = "en_US", LC_ALL = (unset), LANG = "en_AE.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
Hope this info help:
