In Ubuntu 14.04, in the terminal I want to display the three Unicode characters:
U+2591 ░ Light shade
U+2592 ▒ Medium shade
U+2593 ▓ Dark shade
When I echo these characters in the terminal, I get the following, regardless which font I'm using.:
How to make them look as above (from Wikipedia)?
This screenshot shows exactly what I mean:
On the left is a bit of Geany with the character I want to display. On the right the same character as it appears in the terminal. Clearly they are different. Perhaps I'm being a bit thick here... I want the character to be displayed as in Geany, ie. as a small chessboard.
