    Character support problem


    Slackware does not recognize Turkish caharacters (,,,ğ,ı,ş), in other words; names of my files and folders containing these characters are typed in a bad, destroyed and meaningless form. I want to activate Turkish character support on Slackware.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Did you install the KDE localization package?

    It's on the install DVD. If you insert and mount the DVD, type as root:
    installpkg /mnt/dvd/slackware/kdei/kde*tr*tgz




    Assuming that 'tr' is the Turkish localization code, as I believe it is.

    PS. I don't know if this fixes it for you, but it seemed a good place to start.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
