I want to use
Emacs for browsing directory paths on Windows 7.
I'm having problems with special characters like äöü in
dired mode and in attachment paths:
When I'm trying to access a directory with
M-x dired, the displayed path contains strange characters like e.g.
- "\374" for "ü"
- or "\366" for "ö".
Same is true for directory and file listings displayed by
Is there a setting which can make
dired display the characters with the correct encoding?
my other problem seems to be related*:
- I currently added a long server path as attachment directory in org-mode, like
//servername/dir1/dir2/dir2/dir4/etcetera/Zubehör/(I usually copy the UNC path in Windows 7 Explorer with the PathCopy context menu)
The path is shown like that in :ATTACH_DIR: in the properties with the "ö" correctly displayed.
However, when I type
C-c C-a C-f to open the directory in Windows Explorer, it creates a new directory at the same path called ZubehÃ¶r and then opens this oneinstead of the right one.
How can I solve those 2 problems?
