            Bug ID: 356197
           Summary: Files with other encoding than utf-8 are not displayed
                    correctly, also encoding-option is defect
           Product: kompare
           Version: 4.1.3
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]

I try to compare two files with iso-8859-1 (german) encoding, all "umlauts"/..
are displayed as a black-diamond-question-mark-symbol.

kompare --help
lists an option:
  --e <encoding>  Use this to specify the encoding when calling it from the
                  command line. It will default to the local encoding if not
                  specified.
but this results in the error "Unknown option 'e'."

So I cannot compare other files than utf-8.

These are my locale settings:
locale
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

Reproducible: Always
