Problem: trying to connect to a remote server with
mosh you see error messages like:
mosh-client needs a UTF-8 native locale to run. mosh-server needs a UTF-8 native locale to run. The locale requested by LC_CTYPE=UTF-8 isn't available here. locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
OR when connecting with
iTerm2 you get the error message
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8): No such file or directory
I was a big fan of standard linux terminal colour palette. Initially, the default was a saturated version and later it shifted to pastel colours. I still enjoy the way it looks – bright and clear; it also works great if you are giving a demo over a beamer, opposed to dark backgrounds.
Acronyms are new words formed from the initial letters (or parts) of a series of words, such as RAM from random access memory, and radar from radio detecting and ranging. Initialisms are a similar sort of abbreviation but are pronounced by saying each letter separately, for example BBC, VHS, and the FYI of this post’s title. The distinction, BTW, is not always strictly observed – initialisms are often loosely called acronyms. This imprecision is rarely problematic, but it’s good to know the difference. HTH.
