Description Māris Nartišs 2009-12-09 11:49:52 UTC
Version:           1.3 (using KDE 4.3.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

I unzipped file that contained directory with strange letters in it's name (wrong encoding). I can see directory in Dolphin, but I can't enter it - "The file or folder ... does not exist." Still I can "cd" into that directory in Konsole. Seems that Dolphin is confused by strange characters in directory name.

$ ls -l
