I'm running ubuntu server 12.04 on VirtualBox.
When connecting via console, I am able to type in Polish characters just fine (both on the command line as well as in VIM).
When connecting via putty, I am unable to type polish chars (AltGr+a produces "a" instead of the polish char)
I would like the system to remain in English however to also be able to type polish characters via ssh.
On putty, under window>translation I set remote char set to UTF-8. I also selected the consoles font with Central European script.
I tried everything I could find on the Internet (installing the polish language pack, dpkg-reconfigure console-setup) but nothing seems to work.
This is what I have for my locale:
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_US:en LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL=
Thank you very much for all your help!
I figured it out and here is the answer (I can't post it since I don't have enough reputation, spent nearly half a day trying to figure this out and it turned out to be so simple...). Here is the answer:
I fugured it out, thank you very much for all your help nonetheless!
I have win7 and I had my keyboard set to US. I had to go to control panel > region and language > keyboards and languages and add Polish programmer keyboard (adding Polish keyboard but with US layout didn't work). I also set the location to Poland (was US).
This is my work laptop that got rebuilt recently hence I didn't have this set. Polish chars via putty seem to be working perfectly fine now! :)
