Description Michal Hlavinka 2010-01-29 14:18:25 UTC
Version:           4.3.5 (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

When something creates file with broken utf8 name, KDE can't handle this file. It can't be opened, moved, renamed, deleted,... nothing.

how to reproduce:
1)open konsole
2)view->encoding->central europ->iso-8859-2
3)cp somefile.pdf žluťoučkýlůň.pdf
4)try to do something with this file: open, rename, delete,...

actual result:
file ... does not exist

expected result:
possible to work with this file

additional info:
Originally I've got complain that it's not possible to empty Trash on some computer. I've found this is because some file with broken name could not be deleted. This file came from zip archive from windows containing filenames in CP-1250 encoding. Archive was probably extracted using ark. After this I've found there is no possibility for normal user to do anything with such files, it's not even possible to rename/delete them using KDE only.
