Re: Filename issues in KDE... possibly Locale-related

strange thing... I think I might've gotten the Locale fixed. it WAS set to LANG=en_US.UTF-8 originally, but under a suggestion here changed it to LANG=en_US.UTF-8:ISO-8859-1. I have since removed ISO-8859 from my locale.gen and editted my locale.conf accordingly. I since rebooted, and now my filenames all read like they're supposed to, even in Terminal and Dolphin.

my locale output:

[arch@ADA ~]$ locale

All seems to be working well now. I don't know why it didn't read correctly when I originally had it set to just en_US.UTF-8. But now problem's solved smile

How do we mark this thread as solved?

Edit the original post and tag the subject line.

Sounds weird but glad it is working.

Same here for me, I removed the ISO-8859 from my locale.gen and locale.conf, reboot and now dolphin recognize french characters.
I haved never find a solution before....thanks for sharing.
