Missing fonts. The given character is missing in the display font
you're using.

Below is the ouput of dpkg --get-selection | grep font on my system (I
use xfs-xtt to be able to use TT fonts):

dfontmgr					install
emacs-intl-fonts				install
fontconfig					install
fontilus					deinstall
fonty						install
gsfonts						install
gsfonts-x11					install
latex-xft-fonts					install
libfontconfig1					install
libfontconfig1-dev				install
msttcorefonts					deinstall
psfontmgr					install
ttf-bangla-fonts				install
ttf-bengali-fonts				install
ttf-devanagari-fonts				install
ttf-freefont					install
ttf-gujarati-fonts				install
ttf-indic-fonts					install
ttf-kannada-fonts				install
ttf-malayalam-fonts				install
ttf-oriya-fonts					install
ttf-punjabi-fonts				install

ttf-telugu-fonts				install
x-ttcidfont-conf				install
xfonts-100dpi					install
xfonts-100dpi-transcoded			install
xfonts-75dpi					install
xfonts-75dpi-transcoded				install
xfonts-base					install
xfonts-base-transcoded				install
xfonts-efont-unicode				install
xfonts-efont-unicode-ib				install
xfonts-intl-arabic				install
xfonts-intl-asian				install
xfonts-intl-chinese				install
xfonts-intl-chinese-big				install
xfonts-intl-european				install
xfonts-intl-japanese				install
xfonts-intl-japanese-big			install
xfonts-intl-phonetic				install
xfonts-konsole					install
xfonts-scalable					install
xfonts-thai-ttf					deinstall

With all this, displaying Chinese, Korean, Japanese, most language
from India, Greek, all Cyrillic languages, Arabic, Hebrew is
OK. Vietnamese should be OK too. The only one I probably can't display
is Thai (and Klingon probably).

This is with KDE, but I guess the picture is somewhat similar with
Gnome environments.

And, no, I can't read any of these, except Russian..:-)
