Why does YaST now show lines as lqqqqqqq?


So before, I’ve installed new fresh SuSE 11 on my laptop as a VM. Then when I was ssh it through putty, it showed lines as lqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq and so on, like this: desk

It was difficult to read, and also bit annoyed me. So I googled and found on superuser.com, and they suggest to set to add this command:

export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1

Make it Permanent

That works, but when I reopen a new window for it it back to showed lqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq again, so to make it permanent you can do like this:

  • If you are as a user
cd ~
echo "export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1" >> .bashrc
  • And if you are root
echo "export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1" >> /etc/bash.bashrc.local

and finally it show lqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq no more.
