Searching for umlauts

Post by wbuch » Thu Jul 07, 2016 3:08 am

I know this problem occured in the forum a few years ago, but I did not find an answer.
When you are searching for a title or artist with an umlaut like "äöü", it won`t find anything, although the tracks are in the library.
Is there any solution yet? I am using version 0.4.1-2dbffbc
Many thanks

This is a sqlite3 related problem. Seems sqlite can only do case insensitive search for ascii characters and not for any special one. There are ways to solve the problem but with performance penalty. It is something I need to check.

Thanks for your help
