Description of problem:
When I try to create new folder or file with norwegian letters in
Nautilus, I' not allowed to.
The same applies if I try to save a file with norwegian letters in
My Fedora setup is all Norwegian (menues etc)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Nautilus choose "Fil - Opprett mappe" English: "File - New
folder" I guess
2. Change the folder name to a name with norwegian letters, ie. "Prï¿½ve"
3. Error message appears (Could not change name ...)
Actual Results: Error message appears telling me that the name could
not be changed
Expected Results: The folder should be renamed to "Prï¿½ve"
By the way: It should be possible the give the name right after "File
- New folder". It should not be necessary to rename.
What encoding are you using for filenames. I.E. What locale are you
using, and have you set G_BROKEN_FILENAMES or something like that.
