I'm pretty sure this is something I've not get set right in my environment variables but I'll be blasted if I know what I'm missing.
When I launch MC (yes I still use MC) from command line or anything that uses the ASCII codes for drawing lines and right angles they come out with:
'q' for the vertical line
'x' horizontal lines
'j,k,l,m' for the right angles

I also have to use 'esc+number' to get the function keys from F1-F9 to work in the application, but F10 works just fine.
When I launch into fluxbox and go into xterm/rxvt/terminal everything works just peachy.
In lilo.conf I have
append = "vt.default_utf8=1"
When I run setconsolefont any font that is selects show the same kind of anomaly with no ASCII lines just letters in their place.
