I would like to be able to display Chinese filename in Nautilus and Thunar (instead of "???? (invalid encoding)" )

I found only guides/topics for people who want to set their all system in Chinese and people who want to write in Chinese.

The idea is : I only want the filenames in Chinese to be display correctly, nothing else...

What should I install/configure ?
Should I really change something in the locales config ?

What type of filesystem contains those files ?
Usually, it's not the language, that matters, but a few mount options regarding codepage used to interpret the names (at least for Linux filesystems like extX).

Ext4

So it would be some options to set in fstab ?

Well, it depends...
Unless you're keeping all of your system utf8 clean, things tends to get ugly very fast.
Where do those files come from ?
How does 'LANG=C ls -b' list those files ?

(chances are that eventually, you might need to resort to something like convmv to clean things up)
