Getting German special characters(Ex: Ü) printed on the terminal



  Hello,
  Iam running Redhat SL 3.0 on my Desktop machine. I use KDE.
  How can I get Greman special characters printed correctly on 
  the screen.? I donot see the in KDE window "Settings" menu
  the "Encoding" submenu. If I had this submenu then it is easier
  to select the correct character type.(iso-8859-1). How can 
  I install the "Encoding" part of the SW? Is it possible
  to define the character type from Unix commands? I tried the following 
  without success:

  export LC_CTYPE=iso_8859_1

  I will appreciate very much your help.

  Regards,
  Kumar
