Description keisangi 2008-06-25 08:20:37 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.80)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

System: ubuntu hardy heron, kde4.1 beta
If the samba shared directory name is written in japanese 
(i.e: //ニコ/ )
dolphin cannot mount it ..
i tryed from konsole (kde terminal) it's the same result.

smbmount -o username=myName,password=myPass // /media/cdrom0
mount -t cifs -o username=myName,password=myPass // /media/cdrom0
mount -t smbfs -o username=myName,password=myPass // /media/cdrom0

( the directory written in japanese is in share/ニコ )

all failed.. 
i cannot access content of my directory share/ニコ/ (share/niko/)

well the mount happened, 
but konsole and dolphin both only displayed a couple of ?? (question mark symbol)
I could enter the "/media/cdrom0/??/" directory, but then nothing was displayed..

(a user in #kde report the same but with cyrillic shares)

it works in kde3 and gnome and with pcmanfm too
it doesn't work with kde4.1

thanks for your attention
