fish from Entware you’ll get the following file in
/storage/.opt/etc/fish/config.fish. Among other things it sets these two variables:
LANG to en_US.UTF-8
LC_ALL to same value
The issue is that these locales are not present on the system:
# locale -a
That means that programs like
vim cannot work correctly with UTF-8 encoded files correctly when invoked inside
fish session. Could you please patch this?
A quick workaround is to set those variables manually:
set -x LANG C.UTF-8
set -x LC_ALL C.UTF-8
There is locale kodi addon if this helps.
Will test it and report back, but even if it works then it should be set as a dependency.
This is not general distro and not everything applies. Manual work is easy to handle.
Thank you, in any case: locale addon is a nice thing if you want to have extra locales on your system. By default it installs and enables
en_GB. Strangely enough
fish seems to ignore it and one has to execute
set commands in
.config/fish/config.fish to make this work.
