Menu: Settings -> Encoding -> Unicode (utf8)
btw while we're talking about konsole -- my current favourite feature is
its builtin ZModem support. believe it or not, despite being 700 years old
or so, this is still incredibly handy for when you're 5 ssh hops into a
network, and need to transfer some files:
local end: tar cvfz ~/tf [some bunch of files]
local konsole: Menu: Edit -> ZModem Upload -> select ~/tf
[wait for transfer]
remote: tar xvfz tf
and hey presto.
