mc (midnight commander) with iso-8x16 font (syscons)?

Post by Lars Koell » Mon, 07 Oct 1996 04:00:00


      I'm running FreeBSD-2.1.5 with syscons and the cp850-8x16 font, but I
   want to  change to the iso-8x16  font.

      The  problem  is that after   changing the font  per  vidcontrol, the
   ascii-graphics-line    characters   are  displayed as    characters like
   Adiaresis,  etc.  and the fine   lockout  of the  midnight commander  is
   broken.  How can I tell mc to use iso ascii-graphics characters (do they
   exist?, I think  they  do cause mc is   running fine in  xterm  with iso

1. debian-mc (Midnight Commander)

Can anyone help a newcomer with basic Linux use?
I have just installed debian linux by way of Infomagic sixpack, cd roms;
ok so far.
With 'dselect' I marked some relevant files (mc in particular to find my
way around the environment) and installed these.
1.    Where were these files installed to.........I can't  'locate'   mc

2.    I assume that mc executes by typing 'mc" at the linux prompt; it
What am I doing wrong ??????
Thank you in anticipation for any help you experienced people may offer.
