No national character support in M5Label (Micropython)?

  • I have done a nice info panel using MQTT. As I am in Germany, I also get german umlauts (äöüßÄÖÜ) in MQTT payloads. But these will display without the umlauts in M5Label, so instead of 'fällt' I get 'fllt' or for 'bewölkt' I get 'bewlkt'.
    If I use rshell or similar to connect to the Core2, I can print umlauts in the Console (ie print('bewölkt')) and I verified the MQTT payload content prints correctly in the console. Just M5Label does not show the umlauts. The MQTT payload is encoded as utf-8.

    What is wrong?
