Chinese filename in Mac OS X GUI client


Recommended Posts



We're a small game development team evaluating PlasticSCM and liked it very much, but there is a small issue on Mac OS X.


We have lot of asset files and directories contain Chinese characters in the file name, this is not a problem on Window7/8 PC, but on OS X the Chinese characters all appear as little 'squares' in the PlasticSCM GUI client (see the pic).




The actual files in the filesystem show correct name, both in OSX 'Finder' and terminal ('ls' with locale 'zh_CN.UTF-8'), so I think the encoding is handled correctly by PlasticSCM, the issue is more likely in the 'visual' aspect.


I don't know if this is a xQuartz or PlasticSCM problem, maybe it's the font used in rendering does not contain Chinese codepage, I googled around but found nothing relevant, is there anyway I can fix this?



OSX Yosemite 10.10.2

XQuartz 2.7.7 (tried XQuartz 2.7.8_beta3, no luck)
