Jei jums neužtenka libiconv palaikomų kodavimų ir pas jus sistemoje nėra tinkamų senų 8 bitų charset'ų aprašymų, galima atsisiųsti iš Sukuriame kešą kaip root: 2UTF --create-aliases. Patikriname veikimą: 2UTF -W windows-1257 UTF-8 terminale. Įdedame į ~/.procmailrc pradžią:

* Some fonts and other resources: *


Yudit - easy to use Unicode editor for X. It has an utility to generate Postscript output for printing using True-Type fonts. Also has Lithuanian keymap and can use True-Type fonts for display.

Vim. Starting from v6 supports UTF-8 including combining characters. Vim screen snapshot Click to enlarge

mined - DOS style editor with UTF-8 support. Supports combining characters, CJK and BiDi. Mined screen snapshot

QEmacs - emacs style editor with UTF-8 support.

sted - simplistic Unicode editor for Linux console.

Latest version of XFree86 xterm as well as that included in XFree86 4 can handle UTF-8 if that feature wasn't disabled at compile time. It uses ISO 10646 (Unicode) fonts. Click to enlarge

'Less' pager from version 3.44 can display UTF-8.

There was patch by Marcin 'Qrczak' Kowalczyk for bash 2.02. I have modified it slightly to work with any terminal and bash-2.02.1, and later with bash 2.04 using version from Unicode HOWTO. Note that version from Unicode HOWTO is not mine and is unportable linux version.
Click here to download bash-2.04 patch. Use as follows:

gzip -dc bash-2.04.tar.gz |tar xf -
cd bash-2.04
bzip2 -dc ../bash-2.04.UTF-8.patch.bz2 |patch -p1
./configure        # you may want to use ./configure --prefix=/usr if you are on Linux
make install
It detects UTF-8 locale by searching for "UTF-8" substring in LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG and MM_CHARSET environment variables in that order. enable-utf8-mode inputrc option is not used in this version - it is redundant.
Another bash patch is available from IBM developers site

Qt and KDE2 has Unicode and UTF-8 locale support for display. Here is a Qt 2.3.1 patch that allows printing of Unicode. Set K->Control Center->Personalization->Country and Language->Charset) iso10646-1 and for KDE 2.1.x only set Charset to utf-8 in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals [Locale] section
Here is kxkb patch that allows to use default locale charset as Qt gets from environment it instead of setting it by kxkb to arbitrary value. Alternatively you can edit ~/.kde/share/config/kxkbrc and change all encoding names to UTF-8 or just delete encoding strings to use libc locale encoding (LANG and LC_.. variables) but you will need to repeat this every time you use kxkb configurator.

UTF-8 support is included in the GNU troff v1.16 used by man.

9term was first Unicode aware Plan 9 terminal emulator for X. It uses Plan 9 style Unicode fonts. Such text editors as Wily, Sam can use these fonts.
