'ascii' codec can't decode issue


I got 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2 in position 684: ordinal not in range(128) when I type ee info

However I got the solution as stated in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2212353

edit ~/.profile file and add this (below the end of file)

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8

logout then relogin

Glad to know this problem solved at your end

Thanks for sharing solution with community.


Hi @siprof,

We are glad to inform you that the Unicode error has been fixed in EasyEngine version 3.0.3 (https://github.com/rtCamp/easyengine/releases/tag/v3.0.3).

Please update EasyEngine to latest version.

I am closing this support topic for now. Feel free to create a new support topic if you have any queries further. :slight_smile:
