Re: [Bug-XBoard] [bug #33241] xboard quits with "Unable to create font s

After some more random googling and flailing, I have learned that setting the resource "*international: True" in Xaw widgets makes them do something more nearly correct.  Try this:

env LANG=de_DE.utf8 xboard -xrm '*international: True'

When I do that, I get correct umlauts and the ß character in Weiß (=White). But I don't get the right font -- it looks like all the characters are coming from the "fixed" font; they are all small and fixed-width.

does anyone know of any other Xaw program that uses gettext? Perhaps we
can just check their code and see how they do it ;) I can't think of any
right now though, but will search a bit once I have some time on my hands...
