Description of problem:
German umlauts created by Windows don't show correctly. You can't access files
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Error present since Rh8 through Fedora
Konqueror, any other application except Mozilla doesn't display the correct
file- and foldernames
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open applications, go to a vfat partition nad you'll see it.
Inaccessible files and folders
Access them with a correct "i18n"-file
You must edit the /etc/sysconfig i18n file correctly.
My version now looks like:
Everything works fine now.
Unicode support is the future, so the long-term solution is the one described in
You need to have your filenames match your current locale, or mount
them in such a way that their filenames are converted.
Nautilus (and the rest of gnome) assumes filenames are in UTF8 unless
G_BROKEN_FILENAMES is set in the environment, then they are expected to be
encoded according to the current locale.
