[solved] bash misbehaviour
« on: 2020/09/08, 19:07:38 »
I recently installed siduction on an iMac (2012,1); everything perfect.

Then after upgrading the system a few days ago, bash started to misbehave:
bash displays a wrong hostname (m:) as user and the proper hostname (mu) as root
Code: [Select]
jyp@m:~$ cat /etc/hostname
Code: [Select]
jyp@mu:~$ echo $PS1
\[\e]0;\u@\h: \w\a\]${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\

But the worst is that bash inserts a space (see _ ) after a character (cursor in position x) when I trried to type a command:
for instance (trying to type rsync)
jyp@m:~$ r_x
jyp@m:~$ rsync_x
It becomes quite a nightmare!

The alignment is also scrambled
Code: [Select]
jyp@m:~$ df -hT
Filesystem     Type      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev           devtmpfs  7.8G     0  7.8G   0% /dev
tmpfs          tmpfs     1.6G  1.6M  1.6G   1% /run
/dev/sda1      ext4      129G  9.8G  113G   8% /
tmpfs          tmpfs     7.9G  202M  7.7G   3% /dev/shm
tmpfs          tmpfs     5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock
tmpfs          tmpfs     4.0M     0  4.0M   0% /...

These glitches do not occur in tty; everything is normal there.
Finally, another weird behaviour is that after login I get the alternate keyboard layout (ca_fr) instead of the system locale (us)

I tried to google that a lot but came out empty handed as to where to look to correct that; I hope not to be cornered into reinstalling my system!!
Thank you for your attention.

I've seen that earlier with KDE Konsole, the culprit was faulty set fonts (proportional when fixed was needed). So please check:
1. apt install fonts-hack (if not already installed)
2. KDE Systemsettings -> Fonts -> Fixed Fonts <<-- set to Hack
3. Konsole current profile settings, set font to Hack

A thousand thanks
Back to normal except for Yakuake but I suspect it will be ok after a reboot.

I did indeed change fonts in system settings but could not imagine that the problem could come frrom there.
Again, thanks
