How to change the FrontEnd Encoding?


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
