System Time (UBUNTU 13.10)

Post by malte » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:34 pm

Hi all,

trying to figure out, why my UBUNTU 13.10, set to german language yields empty for

the long system time

I get the correct value under UBUNTU 12.10 LTS

Can not figure out what is different between the systems though. :-(

Any help much appreciated.

Livecode doesn't support all chacter encodings, german language has a lot of special chars. What is the standard output of date command on the german pc?

Hi Max,

"the date" will always return the english date:
2/5/14

"the system date" should return the german date:
05.02.14

"the long system time" returns this here:
15:07:53

Hope that is what had asked :D


Best

Klaus

No, I was talking of the linux shell.

It worth to try on the linux shell of the German PC:

Code: Select all

date
and

Code: Select all

date -s
if the output contains special chars, Livecode probably put empty.
