#3874 new defect

Encode error in g.extension, add-ons not written in GUI

Reported by: veroandreo Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.8.1
Component: Addons Version: svn-trunk

CPU: x86-64 Platform: Linux

Description

I just compiled grass77 in a colleague's Linux Mint 19.1 Cinamon laptop following the instructions here: https://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Compile_and_Install#Linux_Mint

All is fine, but when we install any add-on, we get:

g.extension r.seasons

The add-on is indeed installed, but it is not added to the list of extensions in the GUI. I cannot reproduce any of this in my Fedora box with freshly re-compiled grass77 with locale in English.

Locale is in Spanish for Argentina, but there's no special characters in her user:

LANG=es_AR
LANGUAGE=es_AR
LC_CTYPE=es_AR.UTF-8

ps: she is also getting an encode/decode error when trying to display a raster from GUI:

'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 17: ordinal not in range(128)

however, she accepts the error and the raster is displayed anyway...
