I use ISO-8859-2 encoding (LANG=pl-PL). I tried with en-US too. But I
don't know is it the same problem. Thuban ends its work just after Map
-> New Layer (not after start). I tried with my shapes and maps
delivered with Thuban.
I tried FC2 RPM but I didn't have wxGTK2 and wxPython2 packages (only
wxGtk-2.4.2 and wxPython-...), so I had to recompile it from SRPM. I
checked current CVS too but always it exited after try to open new layer.
Can You open any layer even under not UTF-8 encoding?
Thanks for reply
P.S. Did you use something special to compose last message? It hangs my
Mozilla 1.7.2 :)
