Cyrillic fonts

I've been trying unsuccesfully to display cyrillic fonts in Ubuntu (and previously Suse). Esp. I try to play audio CDs in the Gnome CD player and music files in Rhytmbox. The titles of the tracks are in russian and display as unreadable strings of ,, etc.

I dont know if the titles are coded as koi-8 or utf-8. Can anyone help? Should I install any additional packages with apt-get or something similar?

Best regards

Review your installation options. Did you elect to install/include Cryllic? You may have opted to include only English. You may need to reinstall Linux and include Cryllic in the installation.
