Attachments: File with unicode filename.

Description Victor Tran 2015-07-07 11:22:38 UTC
In a filename, Dolphin doesn't show unicode characters. I was transferring a file from a mac called Pokémon, and Dolphin displays it as Pokémon.

NOTE: This also happens in the Terminal, so it may be a system-wide problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a file with a unicode character in it
2. Open Dolphin and change directory to it

Actual Results:  
The unicode character shows up in a fully way

Expected Results:  
The unicode character shows up properly

If you try to delete the file, Dolphin throws an error saying that the file does not exist.

File with unicode filename.

This file has a unicode filename, and the data inside was generated from /dev/urandom. Try this file with Dolphin and hopefully you will see what I mean. In contrast, cd to the directory you downloaded this file to in uxterm and ls.

Actually, turns out that the KDE bugtracker changed the name to download :/

Thanks for the bug report. Are you sure that the characters in the file name are all Unicode characters? Actually, it should work fine with Unicode, but it is known that Qt cannot handle file names with non-Unicode characters, see bug 165044.

This really sounds pretty much like bug 165044.

OK, in that case, I think that this bug can be marked as a duplicate of #165044.
