[SOLVED]ntfs locale=utf8 unable to write accents in filename

Post#1 by blablotin » 29 Jun 2011, 13:27

Hi,
I would like to be abble to write accent in folder and files name on ntfs drive.
Fstab have these lines:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 ntfs noauto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,locale=utf8 0 0 # AutoUpdate
/dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2 ntfs noauto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,locale=utf8 0 0 # AutoUpdate
so I should be abble to read and write every utf letters like é,è for example.
but when I read files, I have "Le Jour où la Terre s'arrêta (2008)" instead of "Le Jour où la Terre s’arrêta (2008)"

And when I try to create in ntfs a folder "ééé" for example, it say "Could not make folder /mnt/sda2/testutf8/ééé.
but I can creat the folder ééé in /root/ or /home/guest/

So how can I read and Write accent for ntfs drive with porteus (and slax remix if possible) please?

@blablotin
fstab is recreated at every boot so tweaking it wont make the effect.
here is what you can:
1) use 'lang=utf8' cheatcode and made all necessary tweakings in your system yourself
2) (recommended way) use "Language Selection Tool" to setup your preferred language in the system.
Please make sure that you answer "YES" for question about localization support for NTFS/FAT filesystems.

If LST wont solve your issue then please show me output of 'locale' command.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
