unicode in XFCE terminal

Postby n4rky » Mon Oct 01, 2012 4:40 pm

Hi,I'm not sure if this is a locale problem or a desktop problem or what. Unicode characters are not appearing correctly on XFCE terminal. Instead of characters with diacritical marks, they appear as emerald shapes with question marks in them and they are apparently really getting mangled, because I cannot paste them back into firefox and get the correct characters. How do I fix this?

This will happen if your LANG environment variable isn't set. You can check with:

Code: Select all

env | grep ^LANG=

It should say something similar to:

Code: Select all

LANG=en_US.UTF-8
