Terminal Display finetunes

Display your local languages in console terminal

To display your own languages, e.g. Chinese, Janpanes in console, you would need to enable UTF-8 encoding, and this could be done by changing the environment variable value of $LANG.

You could firstly test this in your shell:

this to your shell command line
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG

Or,

this to your shell command line
export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"

Once this is done, you should be able to view your own languages with less or vim, and your email program alpine should also properly showing your langues in the inbox as well as in the email contents.

Then, to make lifer easier, add the below two lines to your ~/.profile, so every login the ksh shell will automatically do this for you.

the following two lines to your ~/.profile file
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG

Enable color scheme in Vim

In SDF.org Unix console, by default, the Vim is only showing black and whtie, even you enable it in Vim by using “:syntax enable”. The reason could be Vim could not detech the correct type of your terminal, and by default in SDF.org Unix this is DEC vt100, which is not supporting colors, so solution will be set the environment variable $TERM to terminal types of supporting colors, e.g. “xterm-color” terminal type.

this to your shell command line
export TERM="xterm-color"

Now reopen Vim, you should see the color is switched on.

Then, to make lifer easier, add the below two lines to your ~/.profile, so every login the ksh shell will automatically do this for you.

the following two lines to your ~/.profile file
TERM=xterm-color
export TERM
