I still do not fully understand the problem, so
please, review what I have come up with:
On Linux/Unix the FP-IDE calculates the
addresses of the drawing charactes (also
called pseudagraphics) based on the LANG
environment variable, so for the IDE to work
correctly, its value must correspond with
the console mode which can be checked using
the kbd_mode utility.
If the reported console mode is UTF8 then
the value of LANG must be of the form:
ll_CC.UTF-8. For most cases en_US.UTF-8
Now I don't know for sure what happens with other
locales. From my own experiments, in this case the
IDE simply tries to get the pseudographics charac-
ters from their respective addresses as defined in
CP437. Is this correct?
