           Summary: $TERM linux not working for terminal output in Konsole
           Product: konsole
           Version: 1.6.6
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: regmeplease at gmail.com

Version:           1.6.6 (using KDE 3.5.10)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

I've chosen "linux" as both the keyboard mapping and the terminal type ($TERM
And infact the keyboard mapping is correct and the $TERM variable gets set to
the proper value (that is "linux").
The problem comes when a program tries to display the "line drawing" characters
used for the box borders.
While the display is OK on the actual Linux console (CRTL-ALT-F1 from X+KDE),
it is messed up with strange characters in Konsole.
The keyboard mapping, instead, is working the same way on both terminals.
I'm using "LANG=en_US.UTF-8" amd Konsole is configured to use the same
If possible I'll attach a screen snapshot.
