The line draw characters are in correct on a cygwin display with following settings
Translation: UTF-8, Use Unicode line drawing code points
Any font: Courier new, Consolas, Lucida Console

An unrelated programm does show the proper line draw characters in cygwin: CNU Midnight commander v 4.8.11

  • This is not a font issue.
    nmon is using curses to display the characters on the screen and if they are not displayed correctly you have your TERM shell variable set wrong.
    I would recommend export TERM=xterm
    Or use a better terminal emulator like putty.

      HI Nigel. I already use putty.

      But I have to check what will happen if I specify the TERM=xterm setting.
      Problem is that with utf-8 mc works fine and with ISO-8859 nmon (ncurses)
      works. I'm trying to find a way that both work. Btw I only have terminal
      access (putty) to the otherwise headless GNU-Linux box. X is not involved.
