Simos,

the bug report <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38713>

Simos,

The repair in Mailmerge.py is quite simple


at line 154  we have  textbody = textbody.encode('utf-8')

where the textbody contains non-ascii characters like (éèà etc...)

so just insert

textbody = unicode( textbody, "utf-8" )

before line 154 and everyting works fine !

i make also the bug report with the correct

mailmerge.py

 attacheted

Thanks

Fernand

There is a small problem to send Emails with non us-ascii characters. I
solved the problem in the Python script, just wondering how do i pass

correction to the original script who is delivered by the native

files
I supose filling a issue ?

Is this the file you were working on?

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/libs-core/tree/scripting/source/pyprov/mailmerge.py

If so, then the way to go for this is:

1. create a patch (diff file) which highlights the changes you did to
the Python code.
If you can put your final version of mailmerge.py online, I can help
you create the appropriate patch.

2. file a bug report at
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=LibreOffice
Select the the component 'LibreOffice'.

3. tell us here the URL of this bug report so that we can have a look.
There are several encoding issues with the Python scripts, so it would
be nice to find a way to fix them all in one go.

I created a patch for https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38713

The way to create a patch is quite simple,
1. Install 'git' for your operating system. Google for more or ask here.
2. Run

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/libs-core

3. Then, enter the libs-core/ directory, find your file and perform the change.
4. Finally, run

git diff

and it will create a diff that can be sent to bug reports.
