[Digikam-users] Locale question

Hi there,
I have been using Digikam version 0.8.0 for some time with my old Linux 
distro Mandriva2006. Recently I have moved to Kubuntu Edgy. Here I find 
Digikam 0.8.2 which I have started to use. I have copied all my albums 
from the old distro to the new distro.

Every time I start Digikam I get a message about change of locale, which 
I do not understand. The locale has changed, I am told.  Old locale is 
ISO 8859-1. New locale is UTF-8. I am advised that this may cause 
problems and that I should correct the locale setting before restarting 

Can anyone explain all this please, and tell me how to change the 
setting? Or should I start afresh with this new version and forget my 
old photographs?
