UPDATE The tweak ONLY works with gnome terminals installed on either KDE or Gnome desktop environment (terminals that support it: gnome-terminal, terminator, ROXterm, tilda, guake). It does not work in Konsole or Yakuake, not even in Urxvt.

Mikel, thank you so much for your time and your answer. Please see my comment to my question. I have found the solution meanwhile.

SOLVED I set the value of $TERM to 'linux' (it was set to 'xterm' by default). Added "export TERM='linux'" (without the double quotes) to .bashrc and now the character is displayed properly and I can even see the ASCII coloured drawings.

Update: I tried to use Urxvt in Puppy Linux to see if it makes any difference from ROXterm. Surprise: it does NOT display it as it should be, so the only console that works is ROXTerm (but ONLY on Puppy Linux). It's not a font issue, since ROXTerm uses Liberation and I changed to Liberation in the other terminals, without any result. I'm puzzled.

I get this error when running the code:>>> locale.setlocale('en_US') Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/usr/lib/python2.6/locale.py", line 513, in setlocale return _setlocale(category, locale) TypeError: an integer is required I have tried with RoxTerm in BackTrack, and didn't make a difference: the character is displayed improperly. Here's the [BitchX] (wiki.bitchx.org/svn_instructions) version I'm using, i.e. the latest. BitchX doesn't support utf-8, but it should work, since it works in Puppy.

I just ran the application and saw it..it's a wrongful replacement of the Greek character.
