Image below shows the output from service cron status, via ssh on the left, LXTerminal via RealVNC on the right.


Linux raspberrypi 4.14.98-v7+ #1200 SMP Tue Feb 12 20:27:48 GMT 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

Edit: I'm starting RealVNC from ssh with: vncserver :0 -randr=1910x1005

  • have you fiddled with the locale/localisation settings of the pi? – Jaromanda X Mar 21 '19 at 5:10
  • I did raspi-config -> Change Locale -> en_AU.UTF-8 as part of the initial install. – Nighty Mar 21 '19 at 5:30
  • You've rebooted since? what is the contents of /etc/default/locale - I found that can sometimes be left broken after raspi-config (when I say broken, I mean things like this happen :p) – Jaromanda X Mar 21 '19 at 5:37
  • Yes, have rebooted since. (See original question for file contents, not sure how to format nicely in comments..) – Nighty Mar 21 '19 at 5:40

    Your LXTerminal is not configured to handle UTF-8 sequences. – RalfFriedl Mar 21 '19 at 6:25
