Open gnome-terminal with alternate encoding as default

Asked by Accord Tsai on 2007-10-29

I regularly connect to a remote program that serves its data in zh_TW.Big5 encoding. Every time I must select "Terminal" -> "Set Character Encoding" -> "Chinese Traditional (Big5)". Is there any way I can save this option or is there a command line option I can pass to start up gnome-terminal with character encoding set to my preferred encoding?

This is apparently an unfixed bug in gnome-terminal:

There are a few solutions there including a patch which might work out for you until an update is released with this fixed. :)

Can you help with this problem?
