Moneyplex is an online banking application especially for the German HBCI banking system.
Umlauts in Ubuntu
Since Ubuntu is fully UTF-8 for some time now (and Moneyplex isn’t), you’ll see strange things when using it: Some umlauts are replaced by question marks while others are printed fine.
To get everything working, you have to generate an (old) ISO-8859-15 locale. To accomplish this, edit the file
/var/lib/locales/supported.d/de and add the following line:
Now run the following command to generate the new locale:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
Finally you have to edit the
~/moneyplex/start script to use the new locale. Change the following two lines:
export LC_ALL=de_DE.ISO-8859-15@euro export LANG=de_DE.ISO-8859-15@euro
Now you should see all umlauts correctly.
