would be correct syntax, if your system would know about "fr_FR.UTF-8" as a locale. You should consult you system with locale (man locale for some details)

tried it locale -a and fr_FR.UTF-8 is in the list.

Tried to set
export LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
into ~/.bashrc

Did not work

And if this fails, then check whether you set-language-environment – if you do, comment it!
I did it through the menu Options > Mule > Set Language Environment setting up UTF-8 as well as > European > French.

No result.

Do the Elisp statements change the behaviour? Are the DOS or Windows file name "exported" and "imported" in the right encoding? When the file names are in DOS or Windows in some Code Page, then you can't mount them in Linux as UTF-8 ... (although the excerpt ``A"´´ for è makes one believe, but è is in UTF-8 C3 A8, i.e. è)
Actually the bash reads DOS encoding well including the accents, and even emacs autocompletion is correct in the mini-buffer if emacs is started from ~/. The è unstead è just come when starting emacs within a directory which includes letter accents in the path... Very strange.

Anyway, many thanks for your help,
