I didn't use my laptop for about half a month, then when I started I had an error with kwin that showed black screen first when I logged in, after restarting the pc simply didn't work, when I saw in the system preferences asked me if I wanted to restart kwin to what I gave him that yes, the next day I noticed that in the home folder I have folders created with random signs that have "incorrect coding", the folders are as follows.

  • ��
  • ��
  • ��
  • ��
  • �

when I try to perform some action on the folder dolphin shows me the following error:

The file or folder /home/lewatoto/� does not exist.

as root i can delete the folders, with ls shows this


with ls -all as user:

[lewatoto@localhost ~]$ ls -all ''$'\260\366'
total 20
drwxrwxr-x.  2 lewatoto lewatoto  4096 Jan 19 22:00 .
