On my fresh install of aptosid 2010-02 some characters display incorrectly on the screen. For example, reading the man page for apt-cache there is a list under the "stats" section. All the bullets display as uppercase "A" with a circumflex accent. Also, ncurses screens (like you see running dpkg reconfigure) display with a row of lowercase "a" with circumflex accents around the edge instead on lines.

Is this a locale setting problem? My default locale is set to en_US.utf8. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Additional info. It appears to be a problem in konsole. Characters display correctly in xterm.

that sounds like a problem with the encoding. but konsole should have utf-8 set as default. please check that.

might be the same problem here.
tree -h /media/Music/se7en/Yo\ La\ Tengo/
output in the console looks normal

|-- [4.0K] 1986 - Ride The Tiger
| |-- [3.3M] 01 - The Cone Of Silence.mp3
| |-- [3.3M] 02 - Big Sky.mp3
| |-- [4.9M] 03 - The Evil That Men Do.mp3

but if I send it -o output.txt it tunes into
|-- [4.0K] 1986 - Ride The Tiger
| |-- [3.3M] 01 - The Cone Of Silence.mp3
| |-- [3.3M] 02 - Big Sky.mp3
| |-- [4.9M] 03 - The Evil That Men Do.mp3

Encoding was set to UTF-8.

I closed and re-opened konsole and it works correctly. Logout and back in and the problem is back.

I have KDE set to restore a manually saved session so I saved the session again after restarting konsole and now it is working. Something must have gotten corrupted in the old saved session.
