How can we use Wine (to run Windows software under Linux) with the old character codes (not Unicode UTF-8)?

    which old character codes? export LANG=C should be the most ascii-compatible-english-only mode...

  • I'm talking about the old 850 code which was the compatible ASCII chart with latin characters (ñ, ó, í, â, etc.)

    Hmmm... looking askubuntu.com/questions/76013/… , en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_page_850 and the file /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED, I do not think that locales that are not ISO or UTF-8 are supported. I do not know if wine has some internal thing, though. Will add the tag.

  • Could it be a 32 bit vs 64 bit issue? ???

  • I don't see why word size should matter here.... So no, it shouldn't. Have you tried it? I had very old programs running ok under wine out of the box.
