Non-english characters input problem

Hi all,

I use Archlinux 64bit version with the 32bit libs installed, and I installed calibre using
sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('').read(); main()"
with no problem. Then, I launch the application and loads fine, even with the GUI in my language (Spanish), but when I click in "add books" I see that the folder names are with extrange characters, and when I type in the search box it doesn't recognize some ones, appearing wrong.

For example if I type "ao" , its showing "año".

The GUI, books names and description, and reading them, show that characters with no problem. And I can write those characters in another app (gedit for example) and paste it in calibre, showing them with no problem too.

edit: I forgot to mention that launching calibre by console gives me:

[cel@cel-laptop ~]$ calibre
QIconvCodec::convertFromUnicode: using ASCII for conversion, iconv_open failed
QIconvCodec::convertToUnicode: using ASCII for conversion, iconv_open failed
link  hasn't been detected!
link  hasn't been detected!
Can somebody tell me what do I do wrong?

Thanks and sorry for my english.
