Ok, I wrote yesterday that I will test it (again, I would say, because when I recognised the problem I did some testing. I picked up the FreeBSD Handbook and repeated the procedure listed in the "localization" section - with no success or at most half success).
Naturally I may have made mistake, may have omitted some steps, but I will repeat. anyway, the whole thing started as working in a Windows environment I wanted to setup FreeBSD as a second operating system on my laptop, and I wanted to be able to do my work using freebsd only. The partitioning was done originally from Windows, Fat32 was formatted from Windows 7, and I use fat32 because when I started to use FreeBSD the NTFS support in FreeBSD was only for reading. The directory structure was created from windows, most of the files are various documents created either by me or my colleaugues and most of them are in some of Microsoft document format for compatibility reasons (I mean compatibility with my colleaugues). rgds András Krasznai -----Original Message----- From: Jamie Landeg-Jones [mailto:ja...@dyslexicfish.net] Sent: Tuesday, July 01, 2014 7:40 PM To: M&S - Krasznai András; firstname.lastname@example.org; d...@gmx.com Subject: Re: freebsd and utf-8 directory names M&S - Krasznai Andr??s <krasznai.and...@mands.hu> wrote: > xfe display the file and directory names correctly together with creation > date and time (simple 'ls' does not; it shows double question marks in the > place of Hungarian characters. > > ls | od -c > > shows that such characters are represented in ls output as two characters > e.g. 241 253 or such, I can test again but now I do not remember the exact > numbers; the first of the two is the same for all Hungarian characters) That says to me that your locale is still not set correctly. The ls on it's own could be due to a non-compatible terminal emulator, but the fact that 'od' is showing two bytes rather than trying to display a character (however messed up the output may be) implies the characters are simply not valid in the locale you have set. It would be useful to have the exact numbers from the 'od' (a test filename with more than 2 Hungarian characters would be useful) and an approximate description (or screenshot) on how they should look. cheers, jamie _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
