Accented charaters in song info not displayed

Asked by pincololo on 2010-06-03

Whenever the song playing has accents, or non-ascii characters in the metadata, panflute says the title of the song is "Not Playing". I'm using mpd as my player. Running mpc gives the informations just fine in a terminal. Music Applet had no problem giving out the same information, and did not complain even with chinese/japanese characters in the title. Other than that, thank you for the awesome program.

Thank you.

Could you give an example of a song title you have that triggers this problem?

pincololo (pincololo) said : #2

Song title as given by mpc command on command line :
Francis Cabrel - Une star à sa façon
Panflute shows "Not playing" on the status bar, and does not rotate the different info.
The popup tells me the artist (Francis Cabrel), but "Not playing" for title.

Is there anything in the log files at ~/.local/share/panflute/* ?

Nevermind, I can reproduce this.

Log files:

Can you help with this problem?
