[rrd-users] [Fwd: Question about "alter the generated text to another language"]

Hi all,

I am still having trouble with special characters.

Example: I create my UPS-check-scripts on my linux box with suse 9.1 
with German umlauts - which works.

When I transfer them to a different system with e.g. suse 8.1 or solaris 
the Umlauts are broken - the images contain unreadable characters.

An idea would be to allow HTML-nomenclature like ü for "ü" and so 
on. Is that maybe planned for a future version of rrd?

Hi all,

i use RRDtool 1.0.48 and specify LC_TIME="de_DE.ISO-8859-1"
in my shellscript.

When I generate the images for day, week, month and year everything
works fine with the translation except for the weekly mode!

The syntax for generating the images is always the same as this:

rrdtool graph ups_outputvoltage_week.png  \
         --imgformat PNG \
         --start=$ONE_WEEK_AGO \
         --end=$NOW \
         --color CANVAS#99CCFF \
         --title "USV APC1000Smart Ausgangsspannung OUTPUTV $YEAR" \
         --vertical-label "Volt" \
         DEF:timeleft=ups4.rrd:OUTPUTV:AVERAGE \
         LINE2:timeleft#000000:"Ausgangs-Spannung in Volt (OUTPUTV)\n"

Question: How can I change the text on x-axis from "week" to "Woche"
(German) or is this a know bug?
