The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 441
LISa Konqueror <-> Windows-Client special chars
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:25:53 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?
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
originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
