Hmm; yeah, getting somewhere now. I haven't made any modifications to my
shell config for a while, but I did find this (I use zprezto):
if [[ -z "LANG" ]]; then
I've commented that out, and I get en_GB.UTF-8 now (which is odd in
itself), but Tmux and Vim still render incorrectly: dividing lines are
accented characters. The Linux built-in console renders some lines
correctly, but some angled lines in Vim are rendered as blocks, so it
doesn't seem to be a Konsole thing.
When I try to invoke "man", I get:
man: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct.
I don't have any LC_ variable set manually, but I didn't think I needed
# locale -a
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory
# pacman -Qqkk | grep GB
...but that returns nothing.
Any more ideas?
