[Solved] Auto-mount FAT volume with utf8 encoding with thunar…

Hello,

So yeah I've got a usb stick which is in FAT and it contains some files with Chinese names and they appears as ??? under ma volume manager, thunar.

My chinese file name in my ext4 appears properly ( and in my external ext3 drive too ).

So I guessed the volume manager mount my usb stick with utf8 charset.
I've installed pmount and I've mount my stick manualy with

pmount -c utf8 /dev/sdx /media/mystick

Which works properly, i.e. I can see my files with a correct name in Chinese and not with ???.

So, how can I configure the thunar volume manager in order to mount FAT volume with the utf8 charset ??

P.S : I use xfce4

Maybe have a look at autofs so that you don't need thunar to mount your stick... But I'm no expert on this, I'm still strying to find a way to automount my usb hard drives at boot.

@stqn : Well, you should try to declare your usb drive in you fstab, and they'll be mount at boot.

I'll see what you said

edit /etc/xdg/xfce4/mount.rc
find the "[vfat]" section
append "utf8=true"
