Description manuel_roeder 2003-09-11 22:27:23 UTC
I am using Samba 3rc3 on Suse Linux 8.2 pro and i got a problem with extended or special 
chars like german umlauts. I get a file not found error while browsing the windows client using 
Konqueror and LISa (smb:/ filesystem) but only if there is a filename or dirname including 
special chars. If i try to create a new dir(Konqueror) at the win-client "tüt" is shown as 
"t?t"(shown on the win-client's Explorer). I got no problem creating or viewing dirs with umlauts 
at the Linux-Samba-machine. Maybe this is a charset translation Problem or something like 
that? I tried different charsets using SWAT and the KDE Konqueror settings but it did not work. 
Is there a workaround or bugfix? Is it a samba, kde or LISa problem?

Hi Manuel,

please take a look at bug #153, maybe this solves your problem.

Please show your smb.conf.
Have you tried to look at bug #153 as was suggested by Andreas?

Hello I found a WORKAROUND at a mesage board:

I use SAMBA 3rc4 - dos charset CP850 / unix charset UTF-8 - NO Unicode!!!

At shell-prompt try this:

rm ~/.smb/smb.conf # remove faulty smb.conf
ln -s /etc/samba/smb.conf ~/.smb/smb.conf # link to working config

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
