admintools has random letters all over the screen

Hi,

When I launch admintools in a putty session, there are a bunch of random letters displayed all over the screen (see attachment). Is this normal?

Hi,

Run this:

export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1

And add the command to your .bashrc file so the change is applied every time you log on!

echo export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1 >> ~/.bashrc
