ntfs-3g locale=es_US.utf8 - Not Working Slackware current


Hi,
This entry in fstab that works fine in other distros doesn't work in Slackware current. Letters with accent are not displayed properly.

/dev/sda5 /id ntfs-3g umask=000,locale=es_US.utf8 1 0

Thank you.

AFAIK ntfs-3g dropped support for other locales then plain utf8 long ago. When it works in other distros I think you have set an utf8-locale there. You need to change the locale to en_US.utf8 on your whole system I think (i. e. change LC_LANG and/or LC_ALL in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh).

Thank you.
I added export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 to /etc/profile.d/lang.sh and that solved the problem. This way the menus are in English but I can still see file names in Spanish properly.

Thanks again.

I think you could use the Spanish utf8 locale as well, is it es_ES.utf8?
