Line-drawing characters not longer drawn in console after kernel upgrade - why
I just upgraded in Ubuntu from 2.6.28-13 to 2.6.30 and now I get no line-drawing characters in applications like alsamixer; instead they are replaced by 127-bit chars like 'lqqk'.
As a coder, I'd really like to understand what happened - what changed (file in /etc?) affecting terminal capabilities, and what does the kernel have to do with it :scratch:.
PS: the distro is Jaunty and I used the debs at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/:
Might want to start here..
Other Display Problems
* Line-drawing characters come out as x's and q's
* Line-drawing characters come out as Latin-1 characters
* Line-drawing characters do not appear
I think the issue is tied to the utf-8 locale..
Thanks farslayer, the problem fixed itself after a reboot. I bookmarked your link for future reference and education :)
