russian words in names of folders and files

Postby PatrikuS on Mon Jan 05, 2009 8:43 am

have dualboot with windows xp and linux mint 6.0 via mint4win.
Folders and files with russian words in their names are not visible on /home.
On /media they are visible.
How to make visible folders and files with russian words in their names?
Sorry for my bad English ;)

Which is the language you have installed in?
Did you select russian?

The names in /home are created by xdg-user-dirs.
Maybe it doesn't have Russian support yet or the install didn't download all of the Russian language packs.
This is what I can find

I may have found a solution that works in a normal install of Mint, I have to figure out how to get it to work in mint4win
mint4win is very different

Sorry for the delayed answer but I had to find out for myself first :)
Add
locale=ru_RU.UTF-8
to fstab
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/fstab

Change the line
/host/mint/disks/root.disk / ext3 loop,errors=remount-ro 0 1
so it reads
/host/mint/disks/root.disk / ext3 loop,errors=remount-ro,locale=ru_RU.UTF-8 0 1
In case something goes wrong consult the mint4win section in the forum
