[Linux] Cannot enter accented characters with keyboard



Here is what I get when I try to type "Hélène" in FP IDE.  :(

But when I open old source files with accented characters, the characters are correctly displayed.

Is it the expected behaviour?

The text mode IDE does not support UTF-8 (this will improve with 3.3.1), however by default Linux terminals use UTF-8. Your older files are probably stored in some single Byte encoding (e.g. ISO-8859-1); take a look at them with a hex editor to check whether the accented characters consist of one or multi Byte.

So, yes, this is the expected behavior.

Thank you for the confirmation.
