As many of you know, I use Linux on all of my personal systems, and partly because I speak bits of a number of languages and partly because I know a lot of people who arn't from the United States, I am exposed to a lot of non-English music. The last time someone I knew went to Russia, I asked him to pick me up some music by Сплин, and he also got me some stuff by Звери. Putting them on my computer means having files with Unicode filenames - nothing new to me (I have some Chinese and Japanese music too). Unfortunately, when I go into a directory with a Unicode filename (like "/media/music/collection/звери-районы_кв
No, I haven't checked google yet, and I may eventually dig into the source of bash, gnome-terminal, and other things involved if I exhaust other possibilities, I'm just grumbling in public. If anyone just so happens to have already done the digging to understand/solve this, please reply.
P.S. gok (Gnome Onscreen Keyboard) is one of the most stupid, evil X programs on my system - it tops "xwd" in the list of commands that should never be invoked unless you really know what you're doing. By default, it grabs the mouse for its own, nefarious purposes (meaning it stops acting as a pointer), and seems to grab the keyboard too (so I wasn't able to switch away from it). Fortunately, I was able to pop into a non-X vt to kill it, but that kind of default behaviour is very unfair to most users. I hope that somehow my using a non-default window-manager is at fault and people won't have to reboot if they happen to start gok.
