Description Dotan Cohen 2008-06-30 11:05:18 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.83)

I have two Kubuntu installations, one running KDE 3.5.9 with a UTF-8 locale, and the second running KDE 4.1 Beta 2 with a UTF-8 locale. On the 3.x machine I copied several files with Hebrew filenames to a VFAT USB pen drive using Konqueror. When connecting the USB pan drive to the KDE 4.1 Beta 2 installation, however, both Dolphin and Konqueror show question marks instead of Hebrew characters in the filenames.

Other computers that I tested the pen drive on (one KDE 3.5.9 machine with UTF-8 locale and one Windows XP Professional SP2 machine), with the same files, show the Hebrew filenames with no problem. Note that I can give files Hebrew filenames on the KDE 4.1 Beta 2 machine, the only problem is reading files with Hebrew filenames from USB pen drives. I have not had the opportunity to test from CD or from SSH.

Bug 167547 has a similar situation for filenames over SSH. However, instead of question marks, the user sees gibberish. Therefore I do not believe that the bugs are related.
Comment 2 Nick Shaforostoff 2008-09-07 16:02:16 UTC
fixed for kde 4.1.2 and 4.2

(it seems that automatic bug closing still haven't been restored)

Comment 4 Alexei 2008-10-12 20:27:10 UTC
Well, the problem seemed to be fixed in 4.1.2, but CD's or DVD's still mounts with wrong encoding. I see only "?????" in filenames instead cyrillyc characters!
Comment 5 Nick Shaforostoff 2008-10-12 21:17:02 UTC
wait for 4.1.3 ;)

> wait for 4.1.3 ;)

Do you think it will be fixed in that version?
Comment 7 Nick Shaforostoff 2008-10-12 22:21:07 UTC

Comment 8 Dotan Cohen 2008-11-10 18:58:56 UTC
Confirmed fixed in KDE 4.1.1. Thanks!
Comment 9 FiNeX 2008-12-20 12:35:32 UTC
Someone can confirm it is working on KDE 4.2 beta2 (or trunk) ?
Comment 10 Dotan Cohen 2008-12-27 00:39:01 UTC
I can confirm that the issue is fixed in Trunk. Thanks.
