Autoadd plugin not loading torrents with non-ascii char names

Reported by: thepace Owned by: Cas
Priority: minor Milestone: Future
Component: Plugin Version: 1.3.3
Keywords: autoadd, utf, non ascii Cc:


I load torrent by dropping them into watch folder and autoadd plugin loads them into deluge. On torrents with non-ascii character names files are not loaded into deluge and they stay in watch folder until i manually delete them. On manuall add via gui same torrent load properley.

sample file name that was not loaded:Los cronocrímenes

following error is written in deluged log:

[ERROR ] 00:56:46 core:204 Unable to auto add torrent due to inproper filename encoding: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 19: ordinal not in range(128

OS used: ubuntu x64

I am unable replicate this unless I set LC_ALL=C, can you check that you have UTF8 language set for the OS?

i pmd my seedbox provider to check this , but you are probably right since on other box i took later it worked fine. other one is dedi box so probably it does have utf on by default. thx for pointing out possible cause of this. i will probably close ticket once cause is confirmed

The following code helped a user with the same issue determine that deluged was actually running with ANSI_X3.4-1968 (ASCII) instead of UTF8 so adding it here for reference.
