Line drawing character missing? - Debian

Hi everyone, I've posted before on this list about this problem, I've had some help in my quest for solving this problem but it still exists.

    Default Line drawing character missing?

    Hi everyone,

    I've posted before on this list about this problem, I've had some
    help in my quest for solving this problem but it still exists.

    Programs like "make menuconfig" and "aptitude" that use line drawing
    characters have problems doing so. Instead of lines I get characters
    like '' and ''. I've tried to change the font in both xterm and
    Eterm. In xterm I checked the "line drawing characters" option and
    used fixed fonts. Everything without success.

    The only thing I haven't checked is if I am or not using
    Anti-Aliased fonts. And I haven't done that because I don't know how
    it is done!! :/ I've asked before, but no one replied.

    Another thing is that, in some programs, when quitting or when
    there's data input from the user the characters "1;2c" are echoed.

    There are no problems when running the same programs in the console,
    so the problem resides only in X.

    Thanks in advance,

    This isn't a font problem, it's a language/encoding problem.

    Run "dpkg-reconfigure locales".

    From the list choose one of the options beginning with "pt" (I suspect you
    want "pt_PT ISO 8859-1").

    Is this what you're asking:

    xfonts-100dpi
    xfonts-100dpi-transcoded
    xfonts-75dpi
    xfonts-75dpi-transcoded
    xfonts-base
    xfonts-base-transcoded
    xfonts-scalable

    It opens up xterm... I still have the same problem though.

    I've that selected and also pt_PTeuro ISO-8859-15. I'me seeing that
    the UTF versions now exist. Should I select them? I choosed C to be
    the default locale. Also, I have this environment options:

    LC_MONETARY=pt_PTeuro
    LC_CTYPE=pt_PTeuro
    LC_TIME=pt_PTeuro
    LANG=C

    It's this way because I prefer using english messages.
    Isn't all this OK? I spent some time configuring this to my taste!
    :/
