Fedora :: Certain Characters Show As Blocks

Feb 20, 2011

I am having some text rendering issues.I am using F14 and having blocky (dark black blob) covering certain letters and/or numbers when rendering to my Monitor. I am using 'mesa' drivers and was wondering if this has anything to do with it.I wish to use only non-proprietary drivers.I have several friends whose machine I manage and they have been experiencing a similar phenomena.I use 19 and 22 inch LCD monitors and my friends have similar LCD monitors.I have attached a copy of some output with the problem. I have tried different fonts but have not been able to resolve the issue. Could someone help me in getting a possible solution to this problem?

General :: Make Screen's Statusbar Show The Windows Without The - And $ Characters?

Dec 30, 2010

I have the following in my .screenrc file

hardstatus string '%{= kw}[%{r} %d/%m/%Y %C %A %{w}] [%= %{= kw}%-Lw%{= kW}%{r}%n:%t%?%?%{= kw}%?%+Lw%?%?%= ] [ %{r}%l%{w} ]%{w}%{w}'

Software :: Terminal And Konsole Windows Show Strange Characters

Oct 1, 2009

When I open a terminal or konsole window, output (either STDOUT or STDERR) sometimes contains funny characters instead of something meaningful. Can someone explain how I might correct this situation?

One very repeatable example involves using the manual page command

man set... man page output ...upstart - event-based init daemon

In my copy of the output, there are several problems in the very first screen. In the synopsis section, there is "{ value | ?value? ..." Replace the '?' with a lower-case-a-under-a-carat character (a-hat).
I suspect the garble character might be apostrophe in real life.

In other places, I see var?/able or how?/ever or trans?/action where the '?' is again a-hat and the '/' represents end of line or newline. I suspect the garble character might be a hyphen in real life.

All of this suggests that there is a conflict between the character stream written to STDOUT by the man command and the character-display settings (is that "code page" or similar?) of the specific terminal or konsole in use.

In specific, I use konsole v1.6.6 from KDE v3.5.10. In general, I'm running Ubuntu Hardy (v8.04.3 LTS).

OpenSUSE :: Weird Characters And Missing Texts - Don't Show Any Text At All But Squares Instead

May 22, 2011

I am using a VRS for ftp operations. I have bought it with OpenSuSe 11.3 installed without any Control Panel installed. I have used NX and installed IceWM as windows manager. It works really great. Then system wanted me to upgrade. I did so. After upgrade to 11.4, my programs screwed up. They don't show any text at all but squares instead. I have tried everything i know to fix this but i could not manage to repair it.

My VRS has 512mb RAM , OpenSuse 11.4 (32-Bit) and has no control panel. I use yast through SSH Telnet client (Putty).

Ubuntu :: Change Root Password - Typing A Password, No Characters Show Up?

Mar 9, 2010

I'm really new to Linux so this will probably sound like a pretty naive question to most users, but how do you change the root password?To install Java, I have to type # su into Terminal,which then asks for the password.What's weird is that when I start typing a password, no characters show up. I don't know if this is supposed to happen or not.I've found a bunch of different sites on the Internet that explain how to change the root password, but none of them seem to work for my specific work station.

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. In the GRUB boot menu, I can choose to boot normal or in recovery mode (I'm led to believe older versions don't have this option).I've tried typing # sudo passwrd into Terminal, but I already have a root password set up apparently, so I can't change it there.

Ubuntu :: Delete All ASCII Characters In File - Leave Chinese Characters Only

Jul 8, 2011

What command could I use in terminal to delete all ASCII characters? That is, delete a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and all punctuation? I have a file containing Chinese characters, and I want to remove everything else and leave just the Chinese.

I can use grep to leave only the lines that have Chinese in them, but this still leaves a lot of non-Chinese stuff on those lines. Does anyone know how I could actually remove everything that isn't Chinese?

General :: Does Non-printing Characters Escape Characters Still Needed For PS1 Definition?

Aug 28, 2011

While modifying the definition of my PS1, I saw that "[" and "]" markers should be added to help bash to compute the right display lenght. Many exemples on the web do not use them or even mention them.I searched for a solution to add them automatically, like with sed, but I didn't find any example.Are they still needed and is there a recommandation not to use sed to define PS1?

Fedora :: FireFox 4 And Flash - Displays Various Blocks Of Color

Mar 23, 2011

i am having problems with firefox4 and flash with some sites like msnbc. videos seems to be ok. flash displays displays various blocks of color and is not usable when the problems presents itself. i have the problem on f13,f14, f15 with all versions of firefox4 on two different machines (intel and ati graphics). i tried the new test ubuntu (11.04) and all is fine so i am thinking it is something special about fedora's flash plugin. i mentioned this a couple of weeks ago and it didn't seem to be a common experience.

Fedora :: Unreadable Characters In Evolution Mail?

Oct 24, 2009

I did install FC 11 without problems. The only thing I don't understand is the following.

Viewing some messages, the character apostrophe'is not displayed.Charset is "iso-8859-1" which is the default in my Evolution as well...


Date: Fri, 23 Oct 2009 23:14:24 +0200


Checking the source of the message I can read at some place :

Le Sp=E9cialiste de l=92 Informatique=0A=

what is displayed without apostrophe as =92 is shown as a blank square (not printable character) On the other side I see the following source in same message :

t=E9l=E9charger directement et gratuitement sur le site de l'=E9diteur =0A=

what is displayed with the apostrophe: I don't know why the character apostrophe is sent as =92 This did not happen within FC 10 or the earlier Evolution

Fedora :: Use Accented Characters In The Headers That Get Stuck?

Sep 20, 2010

I am having problems with using the evolution-mapi connector evolution-mapi-0.30.3-1.fc13.x86_64. Certain emails get stuck in the Outbox and return the message "Couldn't send message". I think that it is emails that use accented characters in the headers that get stuck, but these are near unavoidable in the environment I work in. Actually, I used davmail for several months, but after a change in the local proxy, I can't get it to work anymore.)

Fedora :: Unable To Enter Accented Characters On Any Application

Feb 16, 2010

Since Feb 12, I am unable to enter accented characters on any application. I have a Spanish (Latin American) keyboard, where I have to press the accent key and then the vowel I want to have an accent. What happens is this: I press the diacritic key, and then the vowel, but NOTHING appears. Exceptionally, Java apps (eg. Netbeans) show a square with a question mark inside: Something else is strange. Normally, if you press the accent key twice, the diacritic appears by itself, ie. (I copy-pasted that). So, this works for the following accents: But not for these: The letters show fine on my machine, eg. in Nautilus, in Firefox; I am just unable to type them. There were some updates done by yum on the day this started happening, but I have no idea if that's the cause of all this... I tried undoing the update transaction but it failed.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Installation Stops With 510 Square Blocks?

Oct 1, 2010

Part way through the installation of Fedora 13 the installation stops with 510 square blocks displayed. The blocks are arranged in a 17 by 30 pattern and have two different colors. This happens with 3 different versions of Fedora 13. The 32 bit live CD version, the 32 bit version and the 64 bit version. I am able to start a live CD version of Fedora 10 but not the live CD version of Fedora 13 on this computer.

Fedora :: Typing Accented Characters For Latex Directly In Emacs

Jul 28, 2010

What I want is to be able to type something like "camin" (with the accented ") in Emacs, and get it to work after latexing it. An alternative would be to type "cami'on", but the first alternative would be much better.
After googling it seems that this (or at least the second option) should be possible with not much hassle, but I just can't get it to work (maybe because I haven't got much sleep last week).

Fedora Installation :: Multiple Language Support (including To Enter Complex Characters)

Jun 10, 2009

I quit using Fedora when FC4 came out, but I decided to switch back now that F11 has come out. I'm liking everything so far, though it is different from what I became used to (Ubuntu). My main question so far has to do with language support, and I cannot seem to find an answer anywhere for this. I need to have language support for several languages (including support to enter complex characters) for all applications for which it they are available. How do I install all the language files at once for, say, Korean, rather than installing each library one by one?
