I'm working on a project to produce teaching materials in Khmer using the Khmer version of OpenOffice running under Windows with Khmer unicode installed. My colleagues have produced a number of files in Writer and Calc and they have file names including both Khmer and Enlgish characters. I can move them around in Windows ok and I can copy them from my USB drive to my home directory in Vector 6.0 Gold, but I can't copy them back to the USB drive. When I try I get an error message such as: "Failed to open "/media/TOSHIBA/???????? Songs.odt" for writing (Invalid argument)". As you can see, Khmer characters show up as ??? in the file name in Vector. I have Khmer TTF fonts installed on the system and they show up correctly inside the documents.
Khmer isn't listed in the language choices on GDM, and in any case I don't really want to convert my installation to Khmer, even temporarily (I don't speak Khmer myself) - I just want to be able to store the files on my hard drive and copy them onto a USB drive as necessary. Any ideas?
