Problems with accented characters in Cygwin
Wed Sep 10 22:10:00 GMT 2003
This subject seems misleadingly to have been flogged
to death, when in fact, I have found nothing which can
I am trying to get accented characters, or special
characters in general really, to display in my initial
Cygwin bash shell window. I'm not even going to
attempt things in X for now. Just simply attempting
to get them to work in Bash is too much of a pain.
I have added the lines:
set mega-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
to my ~/.inputrc
The characters DISPLAY fine, when I am doing ls on a
folder with accents and umlauts, everything displays
fine. With tab completion, I can complete the
accented names. But I cannot TYPE them. No matter
what key combinations I try, I cannot find any way to
TYPE the special characters at the prompt. I cannot
paste characters from notepad/mozilla into the window
either, nothing happens when I try.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am using Windows
2000 with Cygwin overtop of it.
