The application I am talking about is Worms Armageddon (WA). I'm running it under wine.
Consider the following sequence:
- switch Ubuntu GUI language to Russian (and restart session)
- switch Ubuntu keyboard layout to Russian
- run WA under wine
- type something Cyrillic in WA chat
-- When I do so, I have no problems with encoding. But if I switch Ubuntu GUI language back to English (and restart session), then when typing Cyrillic characters in chat (using Russian keyboard layout), I get question marks (????, ? ?????!..) in chat instead of Cyrillic).
I guess it is somehow related to Windows code page. In Russian, the default code page is cp1251, and in English is probably some other European code page.
So my question is: how do I type and read Cyrillic in WA chat without switching GUI language to Russian?
P.S. The initial desktop icon is:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Worms Armageddon Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/uname/.wine" wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /home/uname/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Desktop/Worms\\ Armageddon.lnk Type=Application StartupNotify=true Path=/home/uname/.wine/dosdevices/c:/GOG Games/Worms Armageddon/ Icon=4948_goggame-1462173886.0 StartupWMClass=wa.exe
Worms Armageddon.lnk is a Windows .lnk file referring to
C:\GOG Games\Worms Armageddon\WA.exe
