    Well, you could install Greek language support. Just go to System->Administration->Language Support.

    Am I a bad person if I decide to bump this?

    I stopped having this problem because all my friends switched to Linux, but now, in university, there are plenty of persons using Windows and I have to co-operate with them.

    I cannot read the txt files they generate in Notepad containing Greek characters. I have installed the Greek Language Support and I've set the Gedit's language to Greek.

    The problem persists.

    Have you tried installing Wine and then opening the .txt file with its Notepad ?

    most likely encoding issue
    utf8 (linux) vs windows-1253 (windows)

    Open file via File->Open... and set win-1253 as the encoding to be used.
