[SOLVED] Wine and russian keyboard layout

Mon Jul 30, 2018 2:40 pm

Hello.

I have Solus Budgie installed with ru_UA locale. The problem is I can type in russian everywhere in the OS except for any wine application. I think it's somehow related to locale, because when I launch a wine application with "env LC_ALL=ru_UA.UTF-8", typing in russian works fine, but without this "trick" only numbers get typed.

I added "export LC_ALL=ru_UA.UTF-8" to my ~/.profile and ~/.bashrc and now if I launch a wine application from terminal I can actually type in russian.

But if I launch the app from the menu, typing in russian is still broken.

Appreciate any help.

I think I've found the culprit. My locale was set by system in /etc/locale.conf to LANG=ru_UA.utf8, which is wrong I assume. After changing it to LANG=ru_UA.UTF-8 and rebooting everything seems to be working fine.

Seems like a bug to me...

This has been fixed in the installer so it won't be an issue anymore for people installing Solus 4+

Thanks for the info, kyrios! I'll mark this thread as solved then, and it can be closed.
