I have my LANG environment variable set to en_US and umlauts show up
just fine.  You might try setting yours to whatever is appropriate for
you.  I guess it would be something like de_DE.  Also, I had to choose
an iso-8859-1 font to use in my terminal, but since you say yours works
with less, you should be fine.

Good luck,

IF I HAD A MINE SHAFT, I don't think I would just abandon it.  There's
got to be a better way.
