Bonus: Revisiting fbterm

I forgot I made this screenshot the other day, on the Solo.


fbterm doesn’t get enough attention, considering its relative importance to anyone who might want to spruce up their desktop without dragging in all of Xorg and company.

That shot, of course, seems to lack line drawing characters, and I can’t seem to figure out why. A few folks mentioned using a UTF-8 locale, but that didn’t seem to fix it.

I know it’s possible to do this (I have photo proof that I’ve done it before), but for some reason this is stumping me now.

It’s not a big deal — there’s no loss of function, of course — but it would be nice to see all the characters there. 😐
