Right now, it looks like this:
Sure (it's limited on the number of glyphs, but it seems your locale is using UTF-8 encoding).
I use this for testing:
#!/bin/sh # send character-string to enable UTF-8 mode if test ".$1" = ".off" ; then printf '\033%%@' else printf '\033%%G' fi
and (calling it "utf8"), "utf8 on" turns the encoding on.
Using the example given with
pstree, here is an example after running the script (before, the same sort of output as in the question):
As noted in a comment, there's a script
unicode_start which does more, but all that is needed to address the question posed is the small script used as an example.
Addressing a different comment: At least on my system (and in the screenshot shown in the question), all of the characters used by
pstree are supplied in the 512-glyph font used by default for Unicode support in the Linux console.
Check that you have the
locales package installed
dpkg -l locales
If not, install it
apt-get install locales
As root, type
you can navigate that list with the up/down arrow keys, for example choose
.bashrc by adding the following lines:
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
localecommand ,the output should be similar to this::
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_US:en LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL=
systemctl daemon-reload && systemctl restart console-setup.service afterwards.
