Description Andreas Kuhl 2008-07-05 17:08:21 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

The plasmoid, which frequently runs a command and display its output, does not show german umlauts (tested with "df -h". The broken umlauts do a lot look like unconverted UTF8 chars.

SVN commit 828398 by aseigo:

proper text encoding.

Louai: this applet has numerous issues, such as no license text in the source files and using proxy widgets when they aren't actually needed, or setting the geometry of the widget in the paint event (just use a layout). please take a look at these issues. the applet apparently has users (see the bug report) so i'm sure they'd appreciate it too =) thanks ...

I am aware of most of the issues, I wrote this for a friend in half an hour and did not touch it afterwards... Planning to fix at least the most grave issues, on vacation right now though ;)
