I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 which uses Files v3.14.2 as file manager. This app cannot show Persian characters in folder name on its title bar. Other apps (VLC ...) have no problem in similar cases.
What would be the reason behind this? Is it a bug?
locale -a command which gave me this output:
C C.UTF-8 en_AG en_AG.utf8 en_AU.utf8 en_BW.utf8 en_CA.utf8 en_DK.utf8 en_GB.utf8 en_HK.utf8 en_IE.utf8 en_IN en_IN.utf8 en_NG en_NG.utf8 en_NZ.utf8 en_PH.utf8 en_SG.utf8 en_US.utf8 en_ZA.utf8 en_ZM en_ZM.utf8 en_ZW.utf8 POSIX
As it is visible, there is no Persian/Farsi locale installed on my system. So Ubuntu could not mange to show it properly.
I went to System Setting > Language Support and activated Persian from the list. After rebooting the laptop, the problem was solved. Now in the output of
locale -a command, I see two more lines:
Yet the question remains if the problem occurred because Persian language was not activated. If yes, why was I not able to see the Persian titles only in the Gnome Files and only when it was not maximized.
Does that mean it is a bug?
