I have a password manager called Keepass2, I've used this under Windows for more than four years. Unfortunately it’s not working correctly for me in Linux Mint. I have a Linux version of the program installed.
When trying to paste a login into a website - either by dragging & dropping it, (as I can do in the Windows version every time) or copying & pasting – all the logins are in English, but in Mint, 25% of the time they get transposed into Chinese characters in the login field (sometimes the password too, I know that if the login's correct, but it fails to be authenticated).
I have Mint Cinnamon 18.1, using Firefox 50.1.0 My locale, language, region is set to EN-GB, although I’m in Thailand (but definitely not China!)
It was suggested checking Firefox - the Text Encoding to ensure sure Auto-Detect was off, which it was anyway. The only languages installed in Firefox are “en-gb” and “en”, in that order
The Mint forum have made various other suggestions, including installing a different browser. I went for a Linux browser Qupzilla.
Qupzilla - twenty times I dragged & dropped into the Gmail login. Worked every time. Then without closing that browser, I did the same with my existing Firefox v50.1.0. That failed on the fourth attempt with drag & drop, pasted Chinese characters again.
Second try: Qupzilla twenty times OK, Firefox failed on attempt number six.
Then I when I had Chinese characters pasted into Firefox from KeePass, I dragged them from Firefox into Libre Office Writer. The result was still Chinese.
The thing that made me smile is that I can even tell you font LO selected: "WenQuanYi Micro Hei" Ha ha!
Have you come across this issue before? Any ideas?
