I'm unable to use diacritics in mupdf's search bar, i.e., only plain ASCII characters are available.
1. Open a PDF file in a language with diacritics
2. Start searching with '/'
3. Type some diacritics in the search bar, like à, û, etc.
No diacritic shown in the search bar.
Diacritics like à, û, appear in the search bar.
Also, compose doesn't work in the search bar.
My keyboard is on:
It works for me in app-text/mupdf-1.18.0-r3
I do not think that the problem is the locale
Could you recompile mupdf and all its dependencies?
I found the reason, my mupdf was built without opengl support. Enabling it, provides a different search bar where diacritics are accepted.
So, the workaround is USE=opengl. I guess that's handled by freeglut.
I'd say the bug is still valid -- didn't find any upstream info.
I can confirm the issue with mupdf-1.19.0 and mupdf-1.18.0-r4.
The issue was reported multiple times on different sources already:
The "fix" is using mupdf-gl (in our case enabling the opengl USE-flag).
My approach would be to inform the user about this problem if they emerge without the opengl USE-flag. I don't see a more elegant solution, since forcing the use of mupdf-gl and rendering the opengl USE-flag useless seems not good.
