There is for sure a font, but apparently your translation does not activate the fallback font which offers quite some more characters.

1) Close Minetest
2) Open or create ~/.minetest/minetest.conf

3) Variant 1: Language setting
4) Add either this setting: language = en
5) Use the "Settings" menu to change the font paths if you'd like to use your native language again.

3) Variant 2: Fix the font path
4) Add the following settings to the file: (adjust paths!)

Code: Select all

font_path = /usr/share/fonts/PATH_TO_SYSTEM_FONT.ttf
mono_font_path = /usr/share/fonts/PATH_TO_SYSTEM_FONT.ttf

5/6) Profit.

When i entered "~/.minetest/minetest.conf" in terminal i got "permission denied" error. Did i do smth wrong? I'm beginner linux user.

edit: nvm i found it manually, added language=en and it worked, thank you.
