adobe-flashplugin (Ubuntu)

The Norwegian chars 'æøå' becomes squares in the Kubuntu 6.10 Edgy RC livecd installer.
Looks like this only affects input boxes.

See attached screenshot.

Reproduced, but I have no idea why the KDE frontend isn't using the encoding of the selected language (or even of en_US.UTF-8, in which it started). This doesn't appear to happen in all locales (for example, en_GB.UTF-8 with a gb(intl) keyboard layout works fine); Jonathan, does KDE have its own built-in charmap table or something?

I noticed this only happen the first time the installer is run in a livecd-session.

Edgy is not supported anymore. Please reopen this report if this is still an issue in a later version of Ubuntu.

There've been persistent reports of this kind of issue and I still want us to investigate it. Please don't close this again unless you are an installer developer.
