Charset problems


Hi,

Yesterday I installed Ubuntu on my desktop and noticed that it was using UTF-8 as default. My server is using ISO 8859-1 now and I couldn't see it's files throught nfs correctly. That's why I configured the desktop to use 8859-1, too.

Now I can see files on my server right, but the filenames on the desktop are all wrong!

What should I do now.. configure both Ubuntus to use UTF-8 / 8859-1? And how can I convert the filenames and correct them?

From the mount man page:
Quote:
Mount options for ntfs
iocharset=name
Character set to use when returning file names. Unlike VFAT, NTFS suppresses names that contain unconvertible charac‐
ters. Deprecated.

nls=name
New name for the option earlier called iocharset.

utf8 Use UTF-8 for converting file names.
I'm not certain, but I think you need the mount option "nls=iso8859-1", but I have "nls=utf8"

Now I managed to convert filenames using convmv. Now it's working fine - I think. Still I don't know which charset I should use. UTF-8 might be a better choice...
