mc - font problem


Hi,
I'm using aterm terminal in Debian, after installing mc I can't use it because of font problem. This is a screenshot: http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/...tieuhau/mc.png.
How could I fix this?
Thanks!

I believe it's because aterm doesn't support UTF-8.

Try
Code:
export LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1
And then run mc and see if it's better. If so add that line to your .bashrc file, or change your locale to the same.
