Hi from Japan!

I like the beginner friendly graphical features of APTus.

However, when I work with it, the terminal window does not display 2 bytes letters (Chinese characters and Japanese letters)

correctly. Instead it shows white squares and I can not read the messages shown in the terminal.

Other applications such as LXTerminal and Iceweasel handle 2 bytes letters correctly, so I assume that my locale setting is


Is there any solution?


Hi from Poland :)

I still have the same problem with Polish letters. I tried to reconfigure console-data, but it did not change anything.

I think, the best way is to change the xterm for something different, such as Lxterminal.

What do you think?

It's done. APTus uses the default terminal emulator now.

Upgrade it up to 0.1.7.

HI, pavroo!

WOW WOW, so quick job, I'm impressed.

Now APTus launches LXterminal and it shows 2 bytes letters perfectly.

Thank you !!!!


It launches the default terminal emulator depends of a desktop:

LXDE - Lxterminal

Xfce - Xfce4-termianal

MATE - mate-terminal, etc.

I had to add one more option : Update packages.

Xterm supports double commands only for aptus (command1 && command2).

So I separated update && upgrade commands.
