terminal problem


I can't see everything in the terminal. when Im at /home and run "mkdir apps", I can see the dir using KDE, but when I run "ls" at /home, I cant see anything, not even "." and "..". I can "cd" to "apps" as usual. I can even extract a package at the terminal, even though I cant see it. If Im root I can see everything. I thought it was my ATI card that was messing around so I started to install the driver from ATI. When the setup menu should appear the terminal was all blank, same when I run apt-setup. the "man-pages" are missing words, well I can't see all the words.

This is what I see when I run "man apt"(I have left the blank lines out):

Code:
apt - Advanced Package Tool
APT  is  a  management system for software packages.  It is still under
       development; the snazzy front ends are not yet available.  In the mean- 
 time, please see      (8).
This is what I get when I copy and paste the text:

Code:
apt - Advanced Package Tool
SYNOPSIS
       apt
DESCRIPTION
       APT  is  a  management system for software packages.  It is still under
       development; the snazzy front ends are not yet available.  In the mean-
       time, please see apt-get(8).
does anyone have a clue what is wrong?
