You do not the proper fonts to display those glyphs, so instead you get a
box with 4 hexadecimal digits that represent the Unicode code point of that

Open up synaptic or  aptitude or whatever interactive package manager you
prefer and look for fonts for whatever language(s) you need. Most fonts start
with xfonts- or ttf- (ttf is probably what you need most).
