Unhappy RedHat and fonts

I have taken the opportunity to switch to Linux. DataFlex Development version is now available for the Linux platform - just the nudge I needed. My client is running Windows NT. My code compiles ok under Linux with a few minor code changes. The problem is -
I have used some fancy "graphics" characters to pretty up the screens ( eg codepage 437 chr(179) etc). The RedHat 7.3 setup I bought off a colleague (no longer local) had no problems displaying these characters either in the graphics KDE window (recommended by DataFlex) or using gedit.
I have installed RedHat 9 and have discovered that these characters are no longer displayed. I will be compiling the programs under Linux and running them under a Windows NT Runtime so I need to use the same characters.
What font should I use, and where do I get it? And how do I get the terminal windows (esp kde) and gedit to recognise these characters?
many thanks

The codes you are using under WIndows are for Unix/LInux ansi terminals ( or emulation). I have checked that under Linux you should be running a terminal that supports and emulates a linux terminal. So, try to open a linux console from konsole, and check that TERM=linux with env.

Then run Dataflex from there.

If you do not find how to open a linux console, try running: konsole --type linux &
