I have a file within a directory that has an "ö" in the name. Trying to create a PDF gives the following traceback (I've removed identifying information from the directory name):
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/base/decorators.py", line 271, in _on_action_activated
action.activate(self._window_context)
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/tools/__init__.py", line 124, in activate
self._runner.run(context.active_editor.file, self._tool, tool_view)
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/tools/__init__.py", line 162, in run
chdir(file.dirname)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/***/Documents/%C3%B6/'

A PDF is generated without problems if the file is moved to another directory.
