XFCE Terminal ? (Question Mark) Characters

I think special characters are not displayed correctly on my XFCE terminal:

oWS94Vj.png

I think my locale is OK:

[jiewmeng@JM backbone-aura-try]$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

These are set in

# ~/.bashrc

...
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

So whats the problem? My console font is set to DejaVu Sans Mono. I tried afew others but got a similar result.

Re: XFCE Terminal ? (Question Mark) Characters

I think that's a completely different issue. 'tree' doesn't print file permission, it uses utf8 symbols to print lines:

$ tree
.
├── 1
├── 1.wav
├── 2
├── 2.wav
├── 3
├── 3.wav
├── 4
├── 4.wav
├── 5
├── 5.wav
├── 6
├── 6.wav
├── 7
└── 7.wav
