    ...that's right: there seems to be no UTF8 support in the terminal (sh or bash), neither as output (?? instead of proper unicode character) or input (can't type Umlauts, , etc.). Also, there is no german keyboardmap in /usr/share/kmap and the kmap extension doesn't seem to be available.

    Thinking of switching to piCoreplayer version < 6. Would that help?

    Regards
    Matti

    kmaps.tcz is available on the piCore repo. You should be able to select that in the extension pages.

    I've had no problems with unicode characters, but not tested greatly. Are you using a local console, or an ssh client. Are you sure your ssh client is setup properly for unicode display.
    piCorePlayer a small player for the Raspberry Pi in RAM.

    Good Morning,

    the connection is made via ssh. pCP's ssh config doesn't have either SendEnv or AcceptEnv set in /usr/local/etc/ssh/ssh_config. So, i'm quite sure it's not the ssh connection messing up the environment on pCP.

    For your information: kmap.tcz is not available in the main-, mirror- or official piCore(Player) repository, as far as i can see on the extensions page.

    I'm in the process of setting up a 5.0.0 standard version server, to see whether things are different there. Mind you, before i crashed my old server (can't remember whether that was version 3, 4 or 5 ;-) ) UTF8 support worked fine.

    Have a good day, stay healthy!
    Regards
    Matti

    blank window from getlocale.sh

    Hello Matti, Hello Paul,

    I am new to squeezebox, just started a few weeks ago with running piCorePlayer on a RasPi 2B, and I am having the same or similar issue: German "Umlaute" symbols causing songs and albums not to show up in the library.
    Actually, it is slightly more confusing, because the albums only disappear in the additional libraries that I have added using the "Simple Library Views" plugin. They show up correctly in the regular "album" library.

    So, in trying to solve this issue, I attempted to install the German UTF-8 locale using the extension and getlocale.sh. But when I run the script with "sudo getlocale.sh" I get noothing but a black screen and the prompt shows up at the bottom of the terminal window again. Adding the line "export TERM=xterm" as suggested did not help. I am connecting via SSH using PuTTY and getlocale.tcz is in the onboot.lst.

    Any ideas from the experts what is happening here and how I could get things working?

    Sorry, I am not overly familiar with linux, so bear with me if I made a silly mistake somewhere.

    Cheers
    SlowMo
