CentOS6: Ntfs-3g And Writing Utf-8 Filenames

Hello there,

I know this has been widely discussed over the net, but I still can’t find a way to write a file whose name contains accented characters in ntfs-3g partitions that are automatically mounted on my CentOS6 system.

Whatever my locale is POSIX, en_US or en_US.utf8, I always get a:

Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character

error when I attempt to create a directory or a file when the name contains an accented char.

I tried remounting manually the ntfs-3g partition using -o utf8 (and older variants: iocharset= and nls=), but it doesn’t work better.

My ntfs-3g disks are automatically mounted in GNOME (as fuseblk). Using ntfs-3g-2014.2.15-8.el6.x86_64 in an up-to-date CentOS6 system.

Any hint?
