what font set do you think would fix this issue?


this in in Eterm slack current full install,
Code:
userx@slackOlatern:/media/data1/qbittorrent.completed$ lsblk

sda       8:0    0 232.9G  0 disk

I do not get this issue with xterm, so maybe it goes deeper than missing font, I do not know, but I got a start somewhere.

It looks like eterm does not support UTF-8 unicode. I used to see similar problems in rxvt, before it was replaced with urxvt.
You could try setting a non-UTF-8 locale in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh to check.

thanks for the lead, found this
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=184801
so I changed it,

Code:
# UTF-8 locales will include "UTF-8" in the output.
#export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US

that worked,
Code:
userx@slackOlatern:~$ lsblk
NAME    MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda       8:0    0 232.9G  0 disk

`-sdb7    8:23   0 215.1G  0 part /media/ntfs1
sdc       8:32   0   2.7T  0 disk 
`-sdc1    8:33   0   2.7T  0 part /run/media/userx/3TB-External
mmcblk0 179:0    0  14.5G  0 disk /run/media/userx/16SDCard
But will that interrupt anything else within Slack?

For an english language user, there is likely to be little disruption. Unicode is the new standard, so you may come across cases where unicode is expected to be handled. e.g. text documents written with a unicode editor, special characters in filenames.

yeaaahhhhh I thought so, I vaguly remember having slight issues with some text files long ago and setting it to UTF-8, I think, I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens. Though, wouldn't assigning a font type to Eterms command line options preclude that issue Eterm -F *-*-fixed-*-*-* something like that?

I'll give that a try and see what's what.
