Garbled fonts (accented) in filenames from Windows
I have some files from my mostly my music collection in mp3s ripped with winamp and I have this problem... I have them on a DVD and now when opening the DVD in Ubuntu the filenames or rather the letters "ä" "ö" etc. show garbled.
I was able to circumwent the problem by firing up the vmware windows installation and copying the files from the cd to my homedirectory. This way the conversion was done by samba.
Now this is not the way I want to go in the future - therefore I am asking - is there a way to make linux somehow do the character conversion or display the content correctly. I have msttcorefonts package installed but this did not solve the problem.
