Details

Just one example. man pages in /usr/man/ru is in UFT-8 encoding, so the dir should be ru_RU.UTF-8, because when I set LANG=ru_RU.KOI8-R I have trash on the screen when trying to read man page which has an russian version of it.
This task depends upon

doesn't setting LESSCHARSET help?
Comment by Yann (Pharaonpso) - Friday, 16 November 2007, 00:37 GMT
If you edit LESSCHARSET in /etc/profile to utf-8, you can read the ones who have russian version, but without removing "-Tlatin1" from the NROFF and NEQN lines in /etc/man.conf you won't be able to read the man pages who are still in english. I don't know if it's the good way to do it, but it works for me. You'll probably need to source /etc/profile for changes to take effect.

@Pharaonpso: status with man-1.6f-2 and groff-1.19.2-4 (in Testing yet)?
about the original bugreport - I think that doesn't solve the issue. See post_install message in man-pages-ru

This bug disappoint because he affect a lot the visibility of a man page

@hard_shooter: Can you try the packages in testing (man, groff, filesystem, bash) to see if this fixes things?
Comment by HardShooter (hard_shooter) - Thursday, 31 January 2008, 17:48 GMT
I've all repository enabled (testing included) so I think these packages are updated

Is this related to  FS#7477 ?
Comment by HardShooter (hard_shooter) - Thursday, 31 January 2008, 17:56 GMT
man pages aren't translated anymore with packages in testing (but I haven't installed man-pages-fr
Comment by Roman Kyrylych (Romashka) - Thursday, 31 January 2008, 18:00 GMT
The proposed solution just disables Russian man pages (which are in UTF-8) completely on a system with ru_RU.KOI8-R locale.
Doing what man-pages-ru post_install says works with both UTF-8 and KOI8-R locale.
See  FS#7477  and  FS#9130  for more info about man and UTF-8.
