Terminator: garbled characters + reporting a bug
Authored by: vtron on May 07, '06 03:57:18PM

I tried Terminator.
It hopelessly garbles the characters in the encoding I am using (Hungarian), I would like to report this as a bug, but when go to
->Help->Report a Bug
it launches Mail which asks me to create a new account.
I am not using Mail to mail I just want to send a bug report.
I found absolutely NOTHING about the authors and/or bug submission
on the Terminator site http://software.jessies.org/
which I found remarkable but sad at the same time.
Any help on how I can submit a Terminator bug report (now also about bug reporting :-) is appreciated.

On the other hand it has to be said that the Hungarian encoding is a really funny one on the mac, I have the suspicion that it is buggy.
It promises to be ISO-latin2 (which is normally used as a reasonable 8-bit substitute), but on the terminal the backspace and backarrow garbles the commandline, i.e., with some characters it thinks it is two or the other way round. this is really annoying. Has anyone experienced this problem with this or other non-English encodings? (this would be worth another thread maybe)
So after all it may not be Terminator's fault, but does make it unusable for me unlike Terminal.

I haven't played around much yet, but sg on the positive note: I noticed that apart from looking pretty if you (accidentally) output a lot of text to the standard output, you can kill it with Control-C and it stops intantaneously. This is not the case in Terminal which sometimes needs half a minute to stop which gets on my nerves.
