Konqueror denies access to directories with invalid unicode name
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
If a directory has invalid unicode name, Konqueror locks the
directory. When user tries to access the directory (double click),
konqueror complains that the directory seems to not exist.
Nautilus seems to handle this quite well. It slaps "(Invalid Unicode)"
text at the end of the garbled unicode name and allows user to access
and even change the directory name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE that comes with FC2 (3.2?)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Name a directory with some invalid unicode characters.
2. Try to access the directory using konqueror.
Konqueror complains that directory seems to not exist.
Konqueror behaves and accesses the directory
Problems seems to be in Mandrake too. After googling a bit, here are
some more info:
i have tried to reproduce this problem with your above instructions in
FC2 and FC3test3.
cp startkde-afs.patch "Ã¤Ã¼Ã¶ÃfileÃ¤.patch"
konqueror can access/change/rename this file and directory without any
problem. sorry, it works for me. please reopen it again if you have
exactly instructions how to reproduce this problem. Thanks

Try opening this torrent file. It will create an invalid unicode directory as I
strange, i have opened this file with konqueror, it does not create
any invalid unicode directory!
could you please give more details? thanks
Hmm.. I found out that Azureus correctly create the unicode directory
(with valid Unicode), but shad0w's client (using wxPython gui) created
the invalid Unicode directory name.
In any case, it's fixed with FC3. Konqueror is now able to access the
invalid unicode directory.
