Re: which locale

Actually I have no filename problems when I mount NTFS/VFAT
partitions. But I can NOT properly display some .torrent files which I
downloaded from the Internet. It may use non-utf8 codes such as
gb18030 or gb2812 code.
Can't Unicode handles non-Unicode filenames?

That's odd. I encountered no problems when I switched to *.UTF-8 myself. All filenames
kept working.

Where do these problems occur? Did you mount a device not encoded with UTF–8? I did when I
mounted my NTFS partitions. Using the „nls" option for mounting made everything allright
