Dear Group Members, I'm using Mathematica 6 on Linux and I would want to know if there is any possibility to change the encoding of the FrontEnd. I've googled the net and only found a way to change the Kernel encoding. Most modern linux distributions use UTF-8 as its base encoding but the FrontEnd is fixed in ISO8859-1. Therefore I'm having some problems when I open files in directories that have characters with tildes or something, like /home/f=F3=F3. In the open dialog the FrontEnd does recognize these directories. But the window title is not displayed correctly and if I try to save the file with "Save as", the open dialog throws me a lot of errors saying "Could not read directory /home/f~~" Any help would be appreciated, Julius
