I have a file which contain ₹ (rupees) sign.

enter image description here

but with nano

enter image description here

Update: Is there something wrong with my locale?

:~$ cat /etc/default/locale
LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"
LANGUAGE="en_GB:en"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_IN.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"

I don't think that colour profile of my terminal is making it invisible because I tried different types of profile to make sure...

    I can confirm the same behavior in 2.4.2. Definitely a bug in nano. Could you please file them a bugreport?

  • @egmont yes, but how? Oct 18 '15 at 10:46
  • The manpage says write a mail to nano@nano-editor.org; the homepage has a Contact page which points you to Savannah's bugtracker. Not sure which one is the better.

  • If this comes through your Linux (or other) distribution, report it there. It might be a "local" mistake, if not, they are in better position to report it upstream.

  • If it's a bug it might have been fixed already. I use 2.4.2 and there it are shown.

It seems that v2.4 (obviously, v2.2 too) has either bug or cannot display some of the unicode characters. v2.5 can display rupee sign
