Description stanley87 2005-10-07 18:46:00 UTC
OpenOffice 2.0 rc1 seems unable to display my utf8 encoded Cyrillic filenames
correctly in the Open/Save dialogs. Even when I save a file with Cyrillic name
using OO, it is unable to restore the filename on the next Open. I reverted back
to OO 1.1.5 and it displays the names correctly. I am using OpenOffice 2.0.0_rc1
ebuild on Gentoo Linux, tried all combinations of USE flags without success.

One can find a screenshot of the faulty dialog on this URL:

I am having the same problem with Hebrew characters. Using gentoo as well, with
the prebuilt binary openoffice-bin-2.0.0
Comment 3 yhager 2005-11-26 20:09:36 UTC
Well, I've defined LC_ALL and LANG to be 'he_IL.UTF-8' (notice the UTF-8 -
that's the important part) - which made everything work just fine and dandy!

I suggest you to try and see if it works for you too.

Dup of or related to Issue 64764?

Can you pls. check whether Issue 64764 also covers your problem?

If not, please contribute a testfile 'test.odt' containing a not working
filename as text, so that we can try to reproduce your problem with that filename.
