Eterm doesn’t display “ or ”

Eterm doesn’t display the fancy “ or ” on my Debian. It is not a big problem, but it’s very annoying when it doesn’t properly display these symbols used in some programs such as aptitude.

I wanted to fix it, but didn’t realize it there was a fix. After two years or using it, I tried to find the solution again, and I found it. Just add the this code to the .profile in your home directory.

export LANG=C

Restart eterm, and the special characters should be displayed correctly. Thanks to the folks at Ubuntu forum.
