Using Fedora 18 x64 and KDE (unless I'm in multi-user mode, of course).
Could not find a similar thread less than 5 years old so here goes. In a console mode only - multi-user or run level 3 - when I run midnight commader with "mc" I get garbled fonts. Some examples of how the garbled fonts look.

Oddly if I use ctl-alt-F3 or similar "F" key to go into console mode from the GUI (KDE) and start mc it behaves. I think it's a console font issue, and if that sounds reasonable would someone please be so kind as to inform me what package(s) I need to install for this? Thanks ahead of time.
fixes it. From the manual the "-a" switch is used to "Disable usage of graphic characters for line drawing." ??
