lack of greek fonts


Hey everyone

i just realised that some files like mp3s trying to open them with totem, vlc, xine neither of these apps shows me the names of the files which are written in greek.

why is that? how can i add support for greek languange?

if i open a text file its contents will show me in greek but its name will still be not recognized....

thank you in advance everyone
cheers

No, that's a mystery. And I have LANG=da.
And have no problems using foreign types.

Google .. Greek localization fedora ..
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/Teams/Greek
http://fedoraproject.gr/

ls 230*
230φιλοξενούνται.mpg

totem =
totem-nautilus.i686 0:2.28.5-1.fc12

As you can see from the images, they all have Greek titles.

May be check the environment with the command : env
Fedora 12 shows LANG=da_DK.UTF-8 ..
Possible info : Please Google .. el_GR.UTF-8 ..
Could your settings be like el_GR ISO-8859-7 ?
