I recently migrated from Ubuntu Desktop 13.04 to Ubuntu Server 13.10 and now my filesystem doesn't seem to support unicode characters. I use rsync to backup/sync files and it shows the proper characters, but it wants to delete the non-matching filename and create an escaped version.
root@ubuntu-server:~# rsync -avh --progress --delete --dry-run --exclude \$RECYCLE.BIN /media/source/ /media/target/ deleting Tiësto - Ten Seconds Before Sunrise.mp3 Ti\#353sto - Ten Seconds Before Sunrise.mp3
Also, if I copy a unicode file to the file system it shows up as:
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jan 21 2013 DJ Ti?sto/
I tried installing unicode libraries via
apt-get install unicode but that didn't seem to do anything as far as resolving the issue.
Update: Now this may be a kernel issue. I'm copying over samba/cifs and I tried to specify the utf8 charset via
mount -t cifs //192.xxx.xxx.xxx/source/ /media/target/ -o iocharset=utf8 but this generates an error...
mount error(79): Can not access a needed shared library Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Checking the kernel log reveals this little gem:
root@ubuntu-server:~# tail /var/log/kern.log Nov 30 03:51:33 ubuntu-server kernel: [ 1756.518222] CIFS VFS: CIFS mount error: iocharset utf8 not found
How do I get utf8 support in the kernel?
