How can I make my terminal(bash) window uft-8, that it can show utf-8 characters?
my operating system is : ubuntu 12.04
my desktop : gnome-shell
How about native shell(outsite of desktop)?

This system worked fine until now: Ubuntu 12.04, Gnome-Shell, Nvidia GTX 460
Then I installed a plugin for Firefox ( proxtube.com ) which required a restart of FF.
I clicked 'restart now' and the system froze immediately (not even ttys were accessible)
After a restart gnome-shell does not start correctly:
There are no panels, menu-bars, or something (except the background and the desktop folders)
I use gnome-terminal, and I run emacs under the terminal in the background by executing emacs &, but after I close the terminal, emacs is also closed. How can I avoid this behavior? I know that emacs is a child process of the shell.
The GNOME Shell redefines user interactions with the GNOME desktop. In particular, it offers new paradigms for launching applications, accessing documents, and organizing open windows in GNOME. Later, it will introduce a new applets eco-system and offer new solutions for other desktop features, such as notifications and contacts management.
For example, say I wanted to start gnome-terminal with it's northwest corner at 0,0, and make the window 736x434 pixels (apparently the default, which allows for an an 80-character by 24-character terminal window).
I'm not sure how much of this matters, but I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with GNOME 3, and whatever versions of Xorg and the window manager (metacity? compiz?) come with that distro.
