This unicode support is a mess. I don't know if I put my debian @work into unicode support or if I remove it @home on my gentoo. Finally I got them yesterday to display some Umlauts again. I am using linux for years now and IIRC in recent years the Euro sign worked everywhere, but I don't get it working anymore. What me really pisses me off is that I am ssh'ing from work into my box at home and mutt has broken line chars, vim freaks out when I enter Umlauts (I am actually used to see them as blanks or question marks). Thats it!
Because slrn (more the slang library) and zsh are not unicode ready I wan't to get rid of it.

Is putting -unicode into USE into make.conf and emerge -vn okay? Also in rc.conf unicode has to be changed from yes to no. Is there more stuff to change?
:roll:

I would suggest doing the steps in the gentoo unicode guide the other way around.
PS: zsh is unicode ready (at least >=zsh-4.3.2)

I tried to do it, but I gave up. At least one thing breaks. Umlauts, linechars in slrn and mutt in xterm or console or both. I am fed up. Even the mentioned zsh version does weird things (space before umlaut when entering one) where bash works. I think I made it, now stuff messes up when I ssh into the box.

Weird, works fine for me. I'm using zsh-4.3.2-r2 and all umlauts/spaces/backspaces are displayed and handled correctly.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Other Things Gentoo.
Not about getting gentoo installed, so moved here.
