Hello there,

I am currently changing from iso latin 1 encoding to utf8 and dicovered
some problems. No KDE application I found so far is able to
automatically select the right encoding of a file (content or filename
itself) or directory. In Kate/kwrite I can change the encoding by hand.
I kedit I have not found any encoding selection.

Can I (if yes how) set the kde programs to autodetect the encoding (like
vim and emacs) at least for the content (I usually do not use umlauts in
