Hebrew not showing in 0.190 on ubuntu


I upgraded from 0.182 to 0.190 on ubuntu 14.04 and hebrew characters in files suddendly won’t display.
My suspicious was that the default monospace font was replaced and I fixed it using the “fonts” package.
I hope this helps others in a similar situation.
There are only a few monospace fonts with Hebrew coverage:

  1. Average Mono
  2. GNU Unifont
  3. GNU Freefont

I picked “Average Mono”.

Now all is well and I can continue working with this great package,


Just as a heads up, if you need a font for stuff like this in something other than Atom:
