The problem is that if I make an entry in
/etc/fstab to mount a samba share I can give the option
iocharset=utf8 and this then mounts the share correctly and in the right encoding with special characters displayed correctly.
Gnomes automount system for some reason never gets this right and I can find nowhere to change its settings.
Is there a way to make it always use UTF8 by default?
This is with Ubuntu 10.10 and the system can display the characters involved.
