Description of problem:

Accents written in filenames on windows show a garbled display in FC3
and previous versions.  For instance "más" is displayed as "m??s" 
I've tested this in Nautilus and Konqueror.  Also accents written in
FC3 show a garbled display in windows.  I've tried other distros:
Kanotix can read windows accents properly and Windows can read Kanotix
accents properly.  In other words Kanotix works well for this.  Ubuntu
can read windows accents, but Windows can't read Ubuntu accents. 
Anyways I know it can be done.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

You will have to clarify - when you say Windows do you mean a FAT32 Windows

I always thought filename conversion was dependent on the iocharset and codepage
the partition was mounted with (there is no well to tell what it should be just
by looking at the disk though). Which language (and if you know what charset)
are you trying to use? Does that match what is in /etc/fstab for that partition?

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2005-01-17 09:18:23 UTC
Nautilus/Gnome expects local filenames to be in utf8 unless you set
G_BROKEN_FILENAMES (then they're expected to be in the current locales encoding).

You need to mount the fat partition with iocharset utf8. How did it get mounted?
