View NTFS Partition with Greek Filenames corectly (UBUNTU)


Hello everybody,

I just installed Ubuntu 5.10

This is my fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda6 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sdb /media/usb0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/windowsmain ntfs utf8,defaults,auto,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/windowssecondary ntfs utf8,defaults,auto,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

Although /dev/sdb, which is my portable usb disk (60 GB, NTFS) has no problems in showing and accessing the files in Greek, I simply cannot make it work on the other 2 partitions. I tried to use UTF8 encoding but it did not work.

What am I doing wrong.

I appreciate all the help I can get.

Thanks in advance.

Is your HDD a SATA Drive?

If not, use hda instead of sda.

Do you see the directories/files but have many "ΞΞ" in the filenames ?
I believe the problem maybe the "utf8" option. "utf8" means use utf8 for character conversion.
It is pretty much the same with "nls=utf8" (which is the new name for "iocharset")
Remove the "utf8" option and put "nls=iso8859-7" and remount
If you remove the "utf8" and don't put anything, it will work too because the kernel will recognise the nls.

Try with the "nls=iso8859-7" first just to be sure.
If it doesn't work the maybe you don't have the nls support.
Try "modprobe nls_iso8859-7" and then try to mount again.
