unicode problems in console? numbers instead of folder names


hello everyone,
i got some problem with unicode fonts in slack11..
i downloaded some discography of a greek artist from a greek torrent site using rtorrent.

i have all the files structured in a subdirectory of the artists name

but using ls doesnt not output all the folder names properly..

Have you tried setting $LANG too? I'm not 100% sure how the $LC_* and $LANG interact under glibc, but it might do the trick.

I think you need convmv. Read this article to see its usage and from where you can d/l it.

Where do you get this output, it looks niiiice

Seriously, you are in Linux console when you see that ?
If yes, try:
Code:
setfont iso07.16
Then re-try a ls
If it does not output correctly the file names, try another font in:
/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts
(There is a README.Greek in this dir as well)
Once you find a good font, add it in /etc/rc.d/rc.font and make sure it is executable so it will be executed at boot process
