Thread: Thunderbird and French

  1. Thunderbird and French

    Hello,

    During weeks and weeks, I ask me why thunderbird doesn't want to
    spellcheck. I do and redo installation but it doesn't want to run.
    Finally I have installed Thunderbird in an other folder and this time
    it's good. SpellCheck works!!!
    So the first time, my Thunderbird installation was in a folder named
    Réseau and Spellcheck doesn't work.
    If I install it on Reseau without é but e instead it's work...
    I think it's a big bug for non US/UK people...

    Is there a solution ?

    Thanks.

    Lets double check the findings shall we?
    Create another folder called Reseau (with the accent) and see if
    Thunderbird works then.

    It may not have been the naming of the folder with the accent that was
    the problem, but the folder itself.

    My experience suggests that accented characters are permissible -- or at
    least cause no problems -- under Windows, but can cause problems in a 'N*x
    environment.

    Don't know if that extends to OS X or not, but since the OP is under XP, it
    would seem hardly to matter.

    A quick boo at Bugzilla didn't turn up anything suggestive. . . .

    I havent found anything suggestive of a problem with accents either, tho
    I admit I dont use accents in names commonly. I didnt run into problems
    using some on OS X, but as you say, that wouldnt matter since the user
    isnt a mac person. My XP machine is still not up yet.

    according to this bug -
    'https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=260034' (RESOLVED FIXED) ,
    "Cannot send mail if temporary directory contains *non-ascii characters*"

    most probably in your case , same ( inability to handle non-ascii
    characters in path name ) problem has somehow occurred.

    I think you should report it as bug at "https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/"

    Please note : before submitting a bug report , please check whether
    anyone has already reported same or not
    ["https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/query.cgi"]

    If I remember correctly, Herb also had a similar problem about last
    summer?? His was with the German umlauts (two dots above a, o and u) -
    maybe he could butt in here and tell us the details??

    Hello,

    I do it and it 's the same thing. If I call my folder Réseau it doesn't
    work and if I rename it Reseau, it works.
    Only personnal dictionnary works in all the cases.

    Are you using the French localized version or the English language version?

    It isn't a problem of word with or without accent but the problem is if
    the installation forlder of thunderbird is written with an accent in
    this letters, spellchecker doesn't work. And in french, network is
    translated by Réseau with an "é"...

    Is Réseau the default installation location for the French localisation of

    Gad that's ugly. Does mozilla have a way to suppress PGP? Slrn does it
    quite nicely. I ask since you use it..

    Oui, bien sûr. Mais mon expérience m'a fait constater que même sur des
    versions françaises de logiciels, il est à éviter d'utiliser des
    caractères avec des accents pour les noms de fichiers et de répertoires
    du fait des limitations héritées du temps du Dos, même si elles sont
    censées avoir été gommées. Personnellement, je limite toujours à 8
    caractères le nom des "directories" et n'emploie jamais de caractères
    autres que les xxx lettres de l'alphabet. Une source de soucis en moi.

    Je viens d'éliminer le problème en downloadant la version beta2 de
    Thunderbird avec son nouveau dictionnaire. Plus de problème. Comme quoi
    c'était bien un bug, et il a été corrigé...
    Un grand bravo à l'équipe de dvp de Thunderbird.
