[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package:  xfce4-terminal
Version:    0.6.3-1+b1

I can not write characters like á,é,í,ó,ú,ñ,¿¡ on xfce4-terminal, but I can
on xterm and tty1 console. I write English text most of the time but some
times I need to write Spanish text as well, so my system  language is
English and I have set LANG=en_US.UTF-8 and my locale is en_US.UTF-8. I
tried to solve this problem adding es_MX.UTF-8 to my locales but it didn't
work, I tried setxkbmap es but I got the same results.

I can write this characters every where except on my xfce4-terminal (I
tried using mate-terminal but it works in the same way), but I love to use
emacs on the terminal as my editor so this problem is really annoying to me.

I'm using Devuan 1.0 RC2.

On the other hand I want to  tell you that Devuan is GREAT! I love it and I
love init freedom!

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely yours MSc Noé Suárez.

Saludos desde México.
