ali1234what is ?00:38
daftykinsi'm seeing a square box, so probably UTF fail in my case00:38
ali1234yes i know that but what actually is the symbol?00:39
ali1234and where does it come from?00:39
ali1234and specifically why does my terminal keep printing it?00:40

daftykinslocale issues?00:40
ali1234it's something to do with unicode00:40
ali1234xfce4-terminal does not print it, but terminator does00:42
ali1234hmm actually it does, depending on the font00:43
ali1234but weirdly xterm with the same font doesn't00:43
ali1234this is so weird00:44
ali1234one day i'll find a piece of software that works properly. one day.00:44
ali1234i should just use vte directly instead of relying on terminals00:51
diddledanali1234: it might not be a real unicode but garbage spewed from a malfunction?00:57
ali1234it isn't00:57
ali1234it's definitely 100% correct unicode00:57
ali1234the issue is that different terminals display it differently00:57
ali1234even though they all use libvte internally00:58
ali1234wait a minute01:15
ali1234i think i know what the problem is here01:24
ali1234the glyph in question is an empty space01:24
ali1234perhaps the PCF font omits this character entirely01:24
ali1234so it gets substituted from another one01:24
ali1234no, it definitely contains the glyph01:27
diddledanif you see it as a square that is the usual sign that a character is being substituted due to the code not matching a valid character in the font01:28
ali1234i don't see it as a square01:28
ali1234i should see an empty space01:28
diddledanthat's how I see it01:28
ali1234instead, i see a weird character01:28
ali1234see http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/261136/libvte-unicode-font-handling01:29
diddledanhow are you echoing the character?01:29
ali1234with cat01:29
ali1234the file i am catting is also linked on that question01:29
ali1234if you think i can add any more useful information, please let me know :)01:29
ali1234both fonts are linked too01:29
ali1234turns out VTE is being consistent at least, i was confused01:36
ali1234seems this is actually a quirk of gtk01:43
ali1234hmm i think i know what is happening01:54
ali1234when i select PCF font in VTE, it replaces *all* the characters with scalable ones01:54
ali1234every single one01:54
ali1234that's why they don't render properly01:54
ali1234for some reason it substitutes ee20 from a different font, while all the others come from the ttf version of my font01:55
ali1234hmm no that can't be it either01:55
ali1234so here's a fun thing to try at home02:44
ali1234try to write a command line program that runs itself inside a new urxvt or xterm window02:45
ali1234and also accepts input on a pipe02:45
ali1234and also exits cleanly at the end02:46
ali1234and also redirects it's output into less, inside the xterm02:46

Myrttithere's still a good amount left but not in amounts that it would be an issue, leaving even those old ones probably wouldn't have been but it's more likely that the people have moved on with dynamic addresses15:35
