Hello DietPi community!
I downloaded Dietpi onto my Raspberry Pi Zero W (pi0W) a couple days ago and I have been loving the experience so far – my pi0W is actually usable on this OS (no hangups, glitches, bugs). It is great!
During my exploration of this OS, I have come across a few small things that I’m not sure how to fix.
Let me explain what I have done on it so far real quick.
I have made a new user; gave it adm, sudo, netdev – all the permissions needed.
Locked the dietpi and root user.
Updated the OS, apt, etc.
I installed and enabled ufw and fail2ban (gotta keep it safe!).
Then, to make the pi0W more usable, I have been downloading terminal-only based programs, such as links2, wordgrinder, ranger, and so on.
(I am using an English (US) keyboard and mouse setup)
Since these programs are using dietpi’s terminal, I figured that the issues I’m having would be a mix of dietpi and creator-of-the-program’s.
My issue: When I use the program wordgrinder (~$ sudo apt install wordgrinder ← for those who have never used it) I noticed that the apostrophe symbol, " ’ " , is replaced with a box," █ ". When I open the README.ws file too, I see more of these.
Moreover, when I go to use italics it doesn’t work. In fact, italics looks the same as bold for some reason.
Has anyone ever encountered this before when using terminal based programs such as wordgrinder?
Any help, ideas, tips is much appreciated!!!
