It must be set before KDE is started to take effect for KDE. If you set it in yout .bash_profile or .bashrc, it will only atke effect for shells, resulting in the behaviopur you describe: the file/dir is created in a shell with an utf-8 locale, and read in KDE with another locale. Try setting $LANG using pam_env, or start KDE with startx from an utf-8 console. Alex.
