The Terminal window unreadable - shows colorful boxes instead of chars

Please let me know how to fix this:

My VPN is off, and kept going back to Open Launcher and Open Terminal but getting the same.

Thank you

Hi @dorum

When this behavior starts?

Could you please share a little more context.

Best regards

Hi Elirod,

Thanks for getting back to me.
It started today at my first attempt to do the lab. Never connect before to AWS.

Oh, O.K.

We can try a basic troubleshooting workflow.

Try the follow:

  • Restart your browser, clear your browser cache, or try a different browser.
  • Use a different network connection.
  • Check if the firewall, proxy, or antivirus software is blocking the connection.
  • Temporarily turn off all browser extensions, and then try again.

Let me know the results as soon as you complete.


You’re the best, switched browser from LibreWolf to Chrome and it works - got chars!

Thank you so much
