    620 Check TERM and LANG variables, the following work well:
    621 {{{
     620Check TERM and LANG variables, the GUI needs a TERM variable (vt100 works well generally), LANG can be unset if there is a GUI problem.
     621
     622For example, the following work well:
     623{{{
     624* for SecureCRT : TERM=vt100  and  no LANG variable
     625* for SecureCRT : TERM=vt220  and  no LANG variable
    622626* for SecureCRT : TERM=vt220  and  LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    623 * for vncviewer : TERM=xterm  and  LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    624 * for putty     : LANG=C
     627* for vncviewer : TERM=vt100  and  no LANG variable
     628* for vncviewer : TERM=vt100  and  LANG=en_US.UTF-8  (in a Gnome Terminal)
     629* for vncviewer : TERM=xterm  and  LANG=en_US.UTF-8  (in a Gnome Terminal)
     630* for putty     : TERM=vt100  and  no LANG variable
     631* for putty     : TERM=xterm  and  no LANG variable
     632* for putty     : TERM=vt100  and  LANG=C

    628 If you want to change that permanently at mondorestore start, there are two solutions.
    629 
    630   1. you can add TERM and LANG variables in MINDI_ADDITIONAL_BOOT_PARAMS (in /usr/sbin/mindi shell-script), and then do a new mondoarchive.
     636If you want to change TERM and LANG variables permanently at mondorestore start, here are two solutions:
     637
     638  1. you can add TERM (and LANG) variable(s) in MINDI_ADDITIONAL_BOOT_PARAMS (in /usr/sbin/mindi shell-script), and then do a new mondoarchive.

     646
     647At restore, the variables can be checked through Alt-F2 and the following command: set | grep -E 'TERM|LANG' ; usually there is only TERM='linux', but TERM=vt100 or TERM=vt220 work well too.

    639649There is also a mondorescue text mode (no GUI) ; to get that mode, instead of "interactive", you have to type "interactive textonly".
