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:
- Average Mono
- GNU Unifont
- GNU Freefont
I picked “Average Mono”.
Now all is well and I can continue working with this great package,
