One-liner to make gEdit 3 correctly autodetect russian encoding

Category: Articles,Linux administrationFractalizeR @ 10:54 pm

Recently I installed Ubuntu 12.04 and it’s gEdit doesn’t recognize cyrillic (Windows-1251) encoding correctly. I discovered one-liner to make it do the task:

sudo gsettings set org.gnome.gedit.preferences.encodings auto-detected "['UTF-8', 'CURRENT', 'WINDOWS-1251', 'ISO-8859-15', 'UTF-16']"
