Support for non-UTF8 filesystems

  • Matthieu Weber

    My filesystem is still in latin1, and all the comics I have stored on CDs use latin1 encoding for the file names and directory names. When automatically creating a new collection from a non-UTF8 directory, comix chokes on the non-UTF8 string. Here is a small patch that keeps UTF8 directory names as is, but converts latin1 directory names to UTF8 collection names. It's not much, and I may improve the non-UTF8 support as I go on using comix (I'm new to it).
