    Using in a filename others characters that numbers or basic Latin alphabet is still today ask for problems. However, at least with xelatex, without the first 3 lines of your preamble and using \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{DejaVu Serif} the ouput is correct.

The use of


indicates you are using pdfTeX, an 8-bit engine. This cannot represent the full range of Unicode code points internally, and there is only a 1-to-1 mapping between 8-bit and Unicode code points for slots 0-127: essentially for A-Za-z in terms of letters. To get other characters to print, the inputenc package makes various code points active, and uses this to remap what look to the engine like 2, 3 or 4 'characters' to a single slot in the font.

This works fine for normal text (if you simply type in ÖüğşiÇ it will print) but not for \jobname as it is a 'string': the category codes of the characters are already set before it's read. You have a couple of options:

  • Use a Unicode engine (XeTeX, LuaTeX) which does handle the full range, plus a font that has the right slots set up (basically \usepackage{fontspec})
  • Tell TeX to rescan (reassign category codes) the input: a bit tricky due to the way \jobname works. Something like

  • perfect working...
