Package: debian-i18n
Severity: grave
Tags: l10n
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,
Farsi layout is working system wide without any problem, but using terminal or vim or gvim, farsi characters are just bunch of question marks. I tried to change terminal profile's font but no success. Even no success with BiCON. I reconfigured locale package and even tried to set some env.
Here is my locale output:


As I told not all the applications are affected for example gedit is working fine, but the annoying part happens when I want to use services that are run from terminal. For example kannel. When I call the api and send a Farsi string, it receives all of them as question marks and send sms as just bunch of question marks.

I'm sorry but I agree with David's closure of this bug (thanks, David
for cleaning out debian-i18n bug log.....it's cool now to have you on
holidays for two months... ;-)

This bug report is too vague to be investigated and assigning it to
"general" is the best way to dig it into dust, just as closing is.

Such "bugs" are beeter being investigated with the help of people with
the appropriate knowledge, in such case Persian language users.

It is indeed quite likely here that gnome-terminal is just using a
wrong font, namely one with Persian characters.
