I asked Anne Wilson:
Can you open a shell and type
It should return
which should confirm your settings.
And you'd probably better check /etc/sysconfig/i18n, too.
Both say that I'm using en_US.UTF-8. I have kde set to use
believe, but if I run system-config-language only en_US.UTF-8 is present.
How can I change it?
Change that value in /etc/sysconfig/i18n. Although the difference is
simply that you'll occasionally get American content / spelling /
preferences. You shouldn't have problems with accents or unusual
characters due to the difference.
(Having said that, I'm still on FC4. Check /usr/lib/locale and make sure
there's an en_GB.utf8 directory there if you're on FC5).
I've seen it mostly in konqueror file manager, but yesterday I
email where one name showed the same problem.
So from where did you get those files? Were they generated on another
What happens if you ls them from the command line?
As for the single e-mail -- I'd blame the other end, personally.
Hope this helps,
