Description Paul Johnson 2005-09-03 15:58:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Nautilus inserts (invalid encoding) into the file name of files that have non utf8 file names.  I have files shipped from other OS and they use various accents for e  and u and it is bad enough that nautilus can't translate them, but it is really horrible that when I use nautilus to change the characters, then the file name is changed so that (invalid encoding) is on the end, even after I fixed the encoding.

I just cut the accent characters and replace with ascii equivalents because I can't figure how to put accented characters into file names with nautilus.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get some file with an invalid utf8 name
2. Use nautilus to change the invalid character

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
