rhel7: luit does not handle EUCJP encoding correctly

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • I have a UTF-8 terminal, but using eucjp encoding is not possible. I call luit but just see mojibake/mixed chars instead of the characters I expect.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7
  • luit (part of xorg-x11-apps)
