This is probably a often-asked question, but I cannot get it working.
I'm not using a graphical interface, just the hardware console. I've created a file with a unicode character ('ä') with Windows 7 and saved it to a usb stick. After I've mounted it on my Pi 3 running Raspbian I cd'ed to the directory and did a ls the unicode character is then encoded as a question mark '?'. I then generated locales using raspi-config (de_DE.utf8, de_DE.iso88591, [email protected]) but whenever I try to do LANG=de_DE.theencoding ls I get a question mark.
I want to be able to list the filename with the correct characters in place.
