[SOLVED] LXterminal special characters: permission problem?

Hi altogether,
i am running arch 64 bit with de_DE.UTF-8 locale and LXterminal as terminal emulator.
I also exported the de_DE.UTF-8 locale to the LANG variable via .bashrc, as explained in the wiki.

When i open LXterminal as normal user, Special characters (e.g. german umlauts) can neither be displayed nor typed correctly.
When i open LXterminal as root, there is no problem, so i understand there is a permissions problem?

I would be pleased if someone could tell me which permissions to change (if this is the problem at all), as i don't want to fool around with chmod in the root directory without knowing what i do^^

Hope i provided you with enough information, if not, just ask.
Thanks in advance!

Re: [SOLVED] LXterminal special characters: permission problem?

What's your output of

locale

And did you setup your /etc/locale.conf (system-wide)?

~ » cat /etc/locale.conf
LANG=es_ES.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE="C"

Re: [SOLVED] LXterminal special characters: permission problem?

Thanks to asdf-chan- taking a closer look into the system-wide section of the locale wiki-article did it:
Instead of

 LANG="de_DE.UTF-8" 

i had

 LANG="de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8" 

in my /etc/locale.conf

I haven't figured out the difference yet but i think i will, if i read the wiki more closely smile
