Hi !

I used to have RedHat 9 and hebrew worked quite well.

Now I installed Gentoo and things are backwards. On my terminal I have hebrew OK, I've set:

CONSOLEFONT="iso08.16"
KEYMAP="/usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/il-heb.map.gz"

And this works fine.

However, this does not apply to X, and in KDE I only get weird charachters that my experience tells me are chars misinterpreted to be unicode, though they're not. Or else it's unicode charachters interpreted to be plain ASCII.

The weird thing is, though this happens on Konsole and OpenOffice, Firefox displays my typing fine.

I wonder what I can do to fix it. Thanks for your help.

Relevant XF86Config lines:

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "Keyboard"

Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,il"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle,lv3:win_switch,ctrl:ctrl_aa,grp_led:scroll,caps:shift"

EndSection

Further research revealed that I'm typing UTF-8 on X. This is untrue in a simple terminal, so I wonder why is that and what I can do to fix this.

OK, the thing is X converts your typing to the proper form according to your locale settings. My locale wasn't set up correctly, so I just put:

LANG=he_IL.iso88598

in /etc/env.d/02locale and it worked. Cool.

yosef,
I've tried both your way and the localisation guide way but I can't see hebrew chars in the console...

Can you recap exactly what you did ?
Are the terminal env variables related to X in any way ?

I am using kde 3.2.2 and emerged kde-i18n with LINGUAS="en he",

Thanks,
Shaul
