Character encoding problem for filename in ubuntu
Hi! i´m new to linux, and right now i´, only using a live dist of ubuntu 6.10, this is my story..
I was runnig Windows XP on my comp, but yesterday my disk, started to sound like a chainsaw or something, i shut off my comp, restarted it after a while, but i got the infamous BSOD, my disk was still sounding like it gonna break any second, so i figured out some ways to rescue the data on the disk, so i put in the live dist cd of ubuntu, mounted the ntfs partition and started to make backup on my USB memorystick.. so far so good, but here comes my problem..
i´m swedish and got some files named with åäö, in this case the file: Kärleken & sommaren2.flp
linux displayed the filename like this in X:
K?rleken & sommaren2.flp(invalid encoding)
i can´t copy it cuz linux can´t understand the filename. and i can´t rename it cuz it´s a readonly disk (NTFS)
Is there anyway i can get linux to understand the filename as it is?, or any other way to copy it, like an id/hash or something like that?
Please help! i´m in a big crisis.
