Fresh install of Arch 64bits.
Mostly everything works but I get some strange characters while in the console or vim.
They are like asci characters but I cannot figure why.
I've also added the following to vconsole.conf:
I've set my locale to en_CA and en_CA.UTF-8 generated the locale OK and everything works but the console.

Figured it out.
I rebooted and ... now we are good.
It's odd, I should not have to reboot to get locale set but hey ... I'll take it that way too
Can you be more specific. What do you mean they are like asci characters? All the characters normally displayed in a console are ascii characters - these include letters, numbers, punctuation, etc.
When/where specifically are they displayed? Are they in response to some key press or other activity, or do they show up randomly? Is it just one character at a time or strings? Are they showing up up at the cursor position, or at random screen locations?
Edit: cross posted with the above ... solved then?

The characters were like an a with a tilda followd by > or ~ and things like that.
It had to do with the settings of my locale. Somehow unitl I rebooted my system it did not take my changes.
Yes, I know it's odd and it should but ... hey that's life
Thanks for the reply.
