http://ubuntuforums.org – I am accessing a samba share on an Buffalo Terastation from 10.04. Mounting the share from the desktop (gvfs) and using smbclient works fine, all characters are displayed correctly. However, when I do a permanent mount all 8-bit characters show up as "?" and I get "invalid encoding" errors from the desktop file manager. I have tried to use iocharset=utf8 and cp850 but with the same results.
