I'm fill my org-mode file with Cyrillic tasks names, and when i try generate TaskJuggler export file i'm got error:

org-taskjuggler-compile: TaskJuggler failed with errors: Error: UTF-8 encoding 
error in line 11:   task __________ "<?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?> <?><?><?><?><?><?><?>
<?> <?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?><?>" {

Not sure so its related with TaskJuggler but i'f found this line in source code on github.

And second, from command line exported file *.tjp to html report going fine. Maybe i must something configure in the SpaceEmacs?


Setting language environment variables in Emacs helped in my case:

(setenv "LC_ALL" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LANG" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LANGUAGE" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_COLLATE" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_CTYPE" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_MESSAGES" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_MONETARY" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_NUMERIC" "en_US.UTF-8")
(setenv "LC_TIME" "en_US.UTF-8")

Check what locale settings you use in shell environment by running locale and set your emacs variables accordingly.
