Re: Tweaks for Leafpad
Considering the ASCII code is quite different, and Ubuntu variants support all sorts of textual options (I can copy and paste Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Korean and it won't skew or mis-convert it), you'll have to look for a program that can directly convert that for you. I don't know of one.
iconv works in terminal:
shawn@shawn-Satellite-C75D-A:~/Downloads$ echo Orākei > test.txt
shawn@shawn-Satellite-C75D-A:~/Downloads$ iconv -f UTF-8 -t ASCII//TRANSLIT ./test.txt
Where's [slooksterpsv] been? - I had Catastrophic partition alignment failure. I lost 90%+ of my data, and just now got it back fixed and working.
