ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND when displaying an image whose folder name contains an accented char

Hi, and happy new year !

This is quite a recent problem, and it is blocking for me.

Using Obsidian 0.13.19 on Ubuntu 21.10.

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a test directory
  • Put an image named e.g. f.png into test/
  • Create anywhere in the vault and write ![[f.png]] into it
  • Open
  • => the image displays just fine


  • Rename test/ to testé/
  • Switch back and forth to

Expected result

The image should be displayed

Actual result

Instead, no image is displayed but the following message is output to the console:

GET app://local/%2Fhome%2Fngirard%2FObsidian%2Ftest%C3%A9%2Ff.png?1641417487517 net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND

I can’t reproduce. Post a screen recording of this happening in the help vault.

Also what filesystem is this vault stored on? Does it support unicode filepathjs?

It’s a regular ext4 filesystem.

Well, the problem seems to have vanished after restarting my machine.

Let’s just forget about it for now…
