hi, i've got problem with florence - it's showing rectangles instead of characters. it's doing for cyrilic, arabic layouts (these two i've tryed). for slovak(central european charset) it's working fine, but i need russian(cyrillic) layout too. i'm using gnome-shell under debian testing (wheezy). before i reinstalled debian (month ago), everything was working ok. florence was installed on fresh copy of debian with us localization.
You need to set the default font in GNOME to a font that supports Cyrillic chars.
I hope this helps.
it works,finally, thanks a lot for help and for florence :)
