I'm writing a little game in C, and I'm using ncurses as a library to write the interface. I tested it on the tty, and everything went smooth; today I tried it on LXTerminal and some characters were, well, really ugly. I'm not sure it's a font problem, but that's what I thought it could be.
Anyway, for instance, when in the tty a character is printed like this:
in LXTerminal the same charater is printed like this:
and so on (↓ - V, ↑ - ^, ← - <). I'd have guessed that a terminal would have had nicer characters than the tty, but I guess I was wrong. Is there any way I can "fix" this, so that the terminal shows the same nice characters of the tty?
I understand it's a an unimportant issue, but appearences count, too.
