Defect #8385

Character encoding is wrong in repository view (bzr)

As you can see on this screenshot, special characters like ä, ö, ü and ß within comments are only showed as '?'.

This is a Bazaar branch, and there aren't any problems with characters if I look directly in the branch's log with "bzr log", so this problem occurs obviously after Redmine got the info from bzr.

I'm running Debian Squeeze (32 bit) and Redmine 1.0.5 (from squeeze-backports) with MySQL server 5.1.49, Ruby, Rails 2.3.5 and bzr 2.3.1.

"bzr log" depends on your locale.
Check your locale and set encoding in your setting.
1.1 is in administrator panel.
1.2 is in repository setting.

#3 Updated by André Bachmann about 11 years ago

My system locale is de_DE.UTF-8, and my 'Commit messages encoding' in Settings, Repositories is set to UTF-8. So is this not correct?

Check your MySQL encoding.
MySQL default encoding is Latin-1.

Redmine forks "bzr log". So, check your redmine process locale (LANG environment variable).
