I'm looking for a solution to the same problem.

You might find this page instructive:-

My system is set to LANG=en_AU.UTF-8, filesystems ext3 and ext4, I
suspect the file names where originally created using an ISO character
set. See an example:-

I don't think the "no white spaces" and "no accented characters" "rule"
is valid in the 21st century. But if some one can put up an
authoritative, and recent, reason I'll reconsider.
