I use an underscore at the beginning of file and folder names to mark them as something "special". But this sorting doesn't work for the most programs under Linux. I tried
LC_COLLATE=C ls and other locales but the results are something strange. Let's say I have these folders:
2 A _F G K S x4
This is the sort order of
ls. When I use
LC_COLLATE=C ls, I have this:
2 A G K S _F x4
I have this under Xubuntu 18.04 using the xfce-terminal-emulator on 2 machines.
What is wrong here?
