I want to add "iocharset=utf8" when I mount the driver.

You would have to edit the code to include that option in the mount command of an nt file system when it is identified.

Jesse would be the person to talk to about this as he is the author of MUT.

Hi,

Just so I understand what you are after, you want to see foreign language characters in file names?
If you name a file by typing in its file name, how do you go about entering the filename characters ?

I didn't enter the character in Puppy.

First,I want to read the name of the file,which have been entered in Other OS.

Then,I want to find a solution to enter the character.

Thanks.

I've had problems before in other distros with file names containing accents and such.

When working on the command line if you want to rename, move, copy, open, etc the file, you have to put a -- (double dash) after the command for it to ignore "special characters", This means that you cannot use wild cards or escape characters as part of the parameters as they will be interpreted literally. E.g. If you have a file called "my*file.txt" you can rename it to make it easy to work with it with the following command
Code:
mv -- my*file.txt my-file.txt


In this case as the command has the -- (double dash) it won't interpret the * as a wildcard but as an asterisc, same for accents, and other characters foreign to the english alphabet.
