Hi I have been using FreeBSD as desktop since 2003, and living in a mixed (windows-linux) environment I installed FreeBSd along with my usual (Windows 7) work environment, I have a dualboot configured laptop. I use FreeBSD-10 STABLE.
There is a partition formatted for FAT32 where I store documents which I would like to view (and edit) both in windows and freebsd. The problem is that if the path name contains certain Hungarian characters (e.g o with double accent), then libreoffice in FreeBSD refuses to open them complaining about illegal characters. The directory was created in windows, the document also, and I can handle them perfectly from windows (what is more, libreoffice under a linux can also open those documents). Some accented characters are shown as a question mark in FreeBSD, and some others are as a black rectangle; these latter are causing problems. If a file-nam contains such characters then the file is shown as 0- length in Midnight Commander. I tried some steps described in the „Localization” part of the FreeBSD Handbook, but things did not improve. I installed PC-BSD with Hungarian language support, thinking that it would handle the localized directory names correctly but no, it gives the same error message. This problem is really annoying. How could I solve it? Krasznai András rendszermérnök M&S Informatikai Zrt. 1136 Budapest, Pannónia u. 17/A.
