Mount smb with correct character set and read/write permissions (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+bug/29413)

sudo mount -t smbfs -o codepage=cp850,iocharset=utf8,fmask=755,dmask=755,uid=<user name>,gid=<user name or group name> //<sharing server>/<shared folder> <mount point>

So to repeat, include the options iocharset=utf8,codepage=cp850 to ensure correct file name viewing. In addition, include the following settings in /etc/samba/smb.conf under the tag [global]

dos charset = cp850
unix charset = utf8
