KDE Konsole adding extra characters


When I load a manual thru the KDE Konsole it adds little boxes in to the text.
Its tough enough trying to figure out what is being stated without the damn little boxes.

How do I get rid of them???

The KDE version is
Konsole 1.1.3 (using KDE 3.0.3-8 Red Hat)

I had the same problem and solved it by editing /etc/man.config and changing the NROFF line to

NROFF /usr/bin/nroff -Tlatin1 -mandoc -c

This sorted the problem.

Thanks nhs that solved the problem.

I would have never figured that one out. Lucky you read the post and had a good solution.

Thanks again.
