Hello all!

I'm trying to figure out how to customize my systems locale. I'm using ubuntu 12.04 and nautilus won't list any Greek filenames correctly. Where do I change from ANSI to unicode/UTF8 system wide? My terminal also doesn't show have unicode support.


$locale
LANG=
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


:guitar:

Update: I have some new very strange behaviour to report!!

When I'm browsing network SMB:// folders, nautilus properly shows non-english files and Greek names!!

However when I try to copy one of those files to, let's say my home dir (ext4), the file is copied with distorted characters like ?''??@@!??.mp3

Please help!

thank you!
