Description Michal Svoboda 2011-03-15 21:38:10 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.1) 
OS:                Linux

File names containing the \350 character cannot be deleted. May be also other characters in file names trigger this bug.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
touch `echo -e '\350'`

Try to delete that file in Dolphin.

Actual Results:  
Error box 'cannot delete that file'.

Expected Results:  
File is deleted no matter what.

Midnight commander and rm commands on the same system have no problem deleting the file.

Actually it seems that any KDE app has a problem with that file.

If your filesystem is set to UTF-8 names (which it usually is, unless you changed it manually), then 0xE8 (=0350 octal) is not a valid UTF-8 byte. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8 for valid combinations.
Comment 2 Michal Svoboda 2011-03-16 06:25:21 UTC
Thats probably why it does fail, but as I said other utilities have no problem accessing/deleting the file.
