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!

What's your output of
And did you setup your /etc/locale.conf (system-wide)?
~ » cat /etc/locale.conf LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE="C"
Thanks to asdf-chan- taking a closer look into the system-wide section of the locale wiki-article did it:
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
