Are you using UTF-8?



I don't know much about your problem, but Googling shows there may be a relationship.

  According to that web page, UTF-8 is the default for sqlite3_open() and
sqlite3_open_v2(). In that case, having LANG=en_US.UTF-8 should not be a
reason why Base cannot establish the connection.
Well, yes and no, much to my chagrin, when using the copy command on Ubuntu, I discovered files that would not copy as they used a different encoding in the file name. They displayed normally do to "naturalization", but when copied to a NTFS formatted disk, refused.

I eventually resolved the problem using "convmv" command.
convmv - converts filenames from one encoding to another.

The nice thing about this command is it does have a test mode and will not change anything until you tell it to.

Hence, a command that runs properly, but cannot recognize a file name.

Another shot in the dark.
