    Angry File Moving with <?> in name


    I've recently decided to actually make a switch to Tux and it's been a very long 3 days; two of which I didn't sleep.

    Now, most everything I've found on Google or else figured it out myself. I just can't seem to find this anywhere and my list of different search keywords always lead me to the wrong thing.

    Problem:
    I'm trying to transfer my music from my 10GB drive to my Home folder but the files with foreign characters (shows up as a diamond with a question mark in the middle) can't be copied for some odd reason.

    Picture:


    Distro:
    Kubuntu 8.10

    try coping it by command instead of dolphin.

    open a terminal in to working directory
    and type
    cp -v * <path>
    e.g. <path> = /home/Music/something/


    if theres a problem it will return a error, post that error
    Never make any misteaks.
