Re: [opensuse] uncompessing zip files and accented characters

Exactly, as far as I know filenames are stored in the filesystem as
octets.

Correct so far.

There's no notion of characters or encodings.

That's not correct.

Neither does the kernel care what the octet sequence represents.

Wrong! File system drivers like ntfs or vfat explicitely use specific
encodings.

Talk of encoding in the filenames themselves is muddled thinking.

I tend to disagree.

As has been suggested, convmv is a way to do that.

Convmv can help may be able to convert the file name on disk but it won't
change unzip's display.
