When change string config file, from:

default_encoding = utf8


default_encoding = ru_RU.utf8

I have error below, but locale installed in OS. How to fix the incorrect display of the locale in the web interface?

Why do you do this?

Comment by Andrej Shadura, on 2016-04-13 15:20

Use lang = variable instead. default_encoding specifies the default encoding used to convert from and to Unicode, just as the comment says, not the locale setting.

Comment by Evgeniy Bondarenko, on 2016-04-13 17:06

lang = ru

variable already set, but error is still exit.

On screenshot you may see language (Ru) and bad encoding

error encoding

Comment by Andrej Shadura, on 2016-04-13 17:12

Don't change default_encoding, keep it to the default value.

It works here: 2016-04-13_19-15-09.png 2016-04-13_19-15-16.png

How do I fix the display of the symbols in the comments in the proper encoding?

Comment by Andrej Shadura, on 2016-04-13 17:51

Okay, some more questions to you:

  1. What VCS are you using, Git or Mercurial?
  2. What encoding is it using for storing commit messages?

Comment by Evgeniy Bondarenko, on 2016-04-13 17:59

  1. Mercurial
  2. I think ru_RU.UTF-8 or CP1251, but do not know how to check. How to check encoding commit messages (windows hg client)?

Thank you for taking time to my question.

Hi, I have the same problem of use Mercurial with Kallithea-0.3.2. on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS Server. Comments of Mercurial commits in russian language does not correctly display. It happens when I run Kallithea from WSGI dispatch script for Apache webserver or as service based on kallithea-daemon-debian sample file: sudo service kallithea start where kallithea is the same kallithea-daemon-debian sample file. But if I start Kallithea as sudo /etc/init.d/kallithea start it success works. May be it will also help you for solving the problem.
