Cyrillic in the XMMS playlist

In the XMMS playlist, the default font for GTK1 does not display correctly Cyrillic file names. A commonly used encoding for Cyrillic text is CP1251. To select a font that supports it, go to Preferences > Fonts > Playlist.

Clicking the Browse button will show the Select playlist font window. Go to the Filter tab and look for the Charset called microsoft-cp1251:

Now go to the Font tab to see what fonts have been filtered out. The only one that supports this character set is Terminus:

Select your preferred style and size and click OK. That’s it.
