How do I find this information? I think it is english utf8, and my locale is
US_en, which eric complains about when I start from the command line:
Warning: translation file 'qt_en_US'could not be loaded.
Warning: translation file 'eric4_en_US'could not be loaded.
Warning: translation file 'qscintilla_en_US'could not be loaded.

yes, I am using the defaults and .py is set to Python, c to C++

No, all my fonts are set to DejaVu sans mono.
