That probably won't matter. The characters in that file are normal 1-byte characters (ISO), not 2-byte ones (UTF-8). I have built xterm with no special options and can see them properly. For comparison: % echo $XTERM_LOCALE en_US.ISO8859-1 % echo $LC_CTYPE de_DE.ISO8859-1 % make -C /usr/ports/x11/xterm showconfig ===> The following configuration options are available for xterm-282: DABBREV=off: Enable support for dabbrev-expand DECTERM=off: Enable DECterm Locator support GNOME=off: GNOME desktop environment support LUIT=on: Use LUIT for locale convertion from/to UTF-8 PCRE=off: Use Perl Compatible Regular Expressions WCHAR=on: Enable wide-character support ===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings I assume you have all neccessary _fonts_ installed? -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
