Non-unicode fonts

Post by shmu26 » Fri Nov 23, 2018 1:01 am

I have programs that display in Hebrew, in non-unicode fonts.
With Wine, I can't even get through the installation wizard, because all the text appears as boxes.
On a Windows system, I just change system locale to Hebrew.
What about on Ubuntu 18?

Have you tried running the installer with LANG=he_IL.utf8?

Thanks.
It installed, but with the error:

The program launches, but the text does not display right. It does not recognize the characters.

FYI the shortcut it created is called תורת אמת UNICODE.
But this program uses NON-unicode fonts. Maybe I did something wrong.

Correction: The shortcut is correct, in fact it links to the unicode version of the program.
This program has also a unicode executable, which is to be used when the regular version doesn't work, but the dev warns that the unicode version is buggy.
