Before this behaviour starts to happen, I remember trying desktop effects (compiz) and installing guarddog firewall.
But, then I've disabled desktop effetcts and I've uninstalled guarddog firewall.
It can be compiz have modified anything in the console tty ...!?
Thenk you again pronoy,
I've treid to boot with linux init 3, and console strarts correctly;
that is I see chars in the right way;
but I've logged in and done the 'reset' command, and nothing is changed.
If I press ctrl+alt+fx in the gui, I obtain the affected console anyway.
just for drill look at the file
sometimes if there are some odd escape characters in there and they are not closed with the proper syntax they can set the console into a weird mode.
you can just backup the file and try with it blank.
