I'm trying to open files in a local application on an LTSP system. But if the path name contains accented characters, like
é, it can not be opened because the URI seems to be encoded wrong.
The problems seems to be located in the way gvfs-open sends the file URI:
gvfs-open /home/user/testé/test.mov VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///home/user/test303251/test.mov'.
Opening the same file from the application itself (using File > Open..) does not give any problems.
Spaces and comma's seem to be encoded differently, with %20, and do not give any problems.
gvfs-open /home/user/this is testé/test.mov VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///home/user/this%20is%20test303251/test.mov'.
Any idea how this can be fixed?
