--- Comment #17 from Fabian <0ink...@googlemail.com> ---
@Dr. Chapatin: The new link would be
http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qfile-obsolete.html#setEncodingFunction . Basically the
Qt project considered the function flawed, and it does nothing anymore in Qt 5.
Thus, with Qt it is pretty much impossible to handle non-unicode filenames. I
wrote a bit in a mail about this at
https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-frameworks-devel/2018-April/061092.html 

Now why does pcmanfm-qt handle this case? Well, pcmanfm-qt doesn't use KIO or
Qt's file handling functionality, but instead uses libfm-qt, which wraps the
from GIO. GIO is GTK+'s input/output abstraction library, and it happens to be
file encoding agnostic.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to simply switch out KIO with GIO in Dolphin,
without a massive rewrite of the application; and even if we did it, we might
lose some functionality that GIO in turn lacks and that KIO provides.
