    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.

    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.


    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
