how to show Cyrillic in KDE / iso 10646

I installed all the cp1251, koi8, and cronyx files. I also installed the Gentium package. Before I did this I was able to see Cyrillic characters from a CD I have. However, after installing other CDs still display gobbledygook.

My locales is UTF8. Should/Can I change it to iso 10646?

How can I identify what the encoding is for the characters?

I would like to test different 'locales' at the command line to scroll through various possibilities until I find the right iso standard. Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?


iso, kde, utf8
