Greetings:
I'm new to Linux/Ubuntu, just installed 10.04. I'm using Google search engines for different languages (US, Portuguese & Chinese), what I found is when I switched to foreign languages in Google search (either Portuguese or Canada), I got weird char in my search page.

Here' the picture of my English search: http://www.glowfoto.com/static_image/15-200853L/7689/jpg/08/2010/img4/glowfoto
and here's my Portuguese search: http://www.glowfoto.com/viewimage.php?img=15-200630L&rand=2832&t=jpg&m=08&y=2010&srv=img4

This is brand new installation, and I thought it was the language pack that's missing, so I went to Administration/Language Support and added Portuguese and Chinese, but the page still showed the same weird char (I think the language support is used to switch to other languages for your Linux and not for webpages).

My installation is Ubuntu 10.04 and the Google BR is using Unicode( UTF-8 ). I'm pretty sure it must be some configuration I'm missing. Can someone please tell me what the problem is and how to fix it?

I think you have to choose the language when you log in. It might be firefox.

Try this?

With the mouse
System>Adminstration>Language Support

install the languages you want.

Try google again.

When I log in, the language I choose is for the OS, right? So that language was English, and afterward, when I'm reading a page, the content showed local language, which is correct, but only some parts showing weird char, besides I'm using Firefox sync between Win & Ubuntu, and in Win, everything is fine, it has no weird char.

I did that, I added Portuguese and Chinese languages, but still the same problem.
