I recently upgraded my desktop to SuSE 9.2 and ran into some problems with w3m
I found that even when using an iso10646-1 font for my xterm or Emacs, w3m
wasn't displaying fonts correctly.
SuSE 9.2 was setting my LANG environment variable to "en_US.UTF-8", which
broke some other utilities, so I unset LANG everywhere.
This still wasn't sufficient. I had to the following to get w3m working in an
- Start w3m using "w3m -v"
- Enter "o" to get to the options page
- find the Display Charset option. It will probably be set to
"Unicode (UTF-8)". Select the "Raw Text" option from the menu.
Scroll options to the bottom and select the [OK] button to save.
- Verify that ~/.w3m/config contains the line "display_charset Raw".
But even with this change, emacs-w3m still doesn't display fonts correctly.
I had to also customize the w3m-output-coding-system to 'raw-text to get fonts
to display correctly there.
Is there some reason why emacs-w3m doesn't see the ~/.w3m/config file? If it
makes any difference, my X defaults contain these settings:
