my idea was/is that out of the box manjaro (kde) installation should be more polished and less “gringy”.
right now my out of the box fresh install experience was this in GUI Konsole:
[deemon@AncientOne test]$ touch öäüõ.txt
[deemon@AncientOne test]$ ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 deemon deemon 4096 Mar 23 03:11 .
drwx------ 32 deemon deemon 4096 Mar 23 03:11 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 deemon deemon 0 Mar 23 03:11 ''$'\303\266\303\244\303\274\303\265''.txt'
This is just silly. I’d rather not have to ask for help to fix it, but this should be right out of the box.
EDIT: This might be also Konsole bug or shortcoming though. Because if I use CTRL-ALT-F2 and login from there, then the letters show correctly.
EDIT2: after messing around with locale and locale-gen I got it now working without any additions to .bashrc (removed the export line I added previously, and it shows now correctly.).
Could it be that when changing KDE Settings => Personalization => Regional Settings => Formats => and setting there something to previously unused new language (or to any language NOT in the “KDE Settings => Manjaro => Locale => System locales”) – because it pretty much lets you choose whatever format language there – makes something broken (because on this case locale-gen is not ran and the new needed locale is not generated) and freaks Konsole out?
EDIT3: INDEED! This is the case. Set for example KDE Settings => Personalization => Regional Settings => Formats => Currency: Finland (sms_FI) ( LC_MONETARY = “sms_FI.UTF-8” ).
“locale -a” does not list this new locale installed AND konsole output is broken now again.
