Archlinux – fixing the strange characters in your terminal

By | April 20, 2013


Ever get those strange looking little buggers in your console after installing Arch and firing up the terminal ?
Something like this —
[[email protected] ~]$ pstree
│ └─sshd───sshd───bash───pstree

Simply add the following to your .bashrc and close your terminal window and open it up again, or source the .bashrc file again.
export LC_ALL=C

[[email protected] ~]$ pstree
| `-sshd---sshd---bash---pstree
[[email protected] ~]$
