Konqueror File Manager + Unicode

Greetings everyone, here's my problem...

Most of my files have their names in cyrillic and unfortunatelly, the KDE default file manager (Konqueror) can't recognize the unicode characters, showing all of them as question marks. How can I solve this problem? (PS: KDE is 3.3)

have you tried
settings -> configure konqueror -> fonts -> default encoding

qt uses unicode internally so it shouldn't be a problem
also check out the mount command in /etc/fstab for the partition in question
i think some types of filesystems require a mount option to see unicode properly
possibly post the mount command if you need further help

Try setting LANG variable in your /etc/profile file.
export LANG="en_US.utf8"
