    Default gedit can't open gb18030 encoding file correctly

    openSUSE 11.2
    Simple Chinese is supported as second language. the primary language is English.

    But I can't open Chinese file using gedit. it only support English?

    how can I solve this issue? the Chinese file is GB18030 encoding.

    i hate to say this but i guess you probably have to find a Chinese
    user who has solved the problem you are having...maybe help is
    available from a local Linux User Group, try
    http://www.linux.org/groups/china.html

    WAIT, a google on
    Chinese gedit GB18030 bug
    <http://www.google.com/search?q=Chinese+gedit+GB18030+bug>
    turns up almost 15,000 hits....i suggest you read several to see if
    your problem is a known issue, and probably being worked on..

    but, since gedit is a pretty plain and simple text editor (and there
    are about a million of those) why not try another... just looked (Menu
    > Utilities > Editors) and see i have Kate, Mousepad, Emacs, Scribes

    installed...you may have those and others also..

    as a work around you might *try* using YaST to load the basics of KDE
    and then try using KWrite

    or pick other from here to try:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_text_editors

    when you see one that sounds like what you want just pop open YaST and
    search for it by name, maybe it is in a repo..

    I tried such chinese file on Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.3.
    I can open the chinese file using gedit correctly.

    seems this issue not gedit's problem?
    only repro on openSUSE?
