It appears that the /tools directory of SDK6.2 introduced a bug (compared to SDK6.0) that corrupts the console window on Linux Mint (initial report here:  Square Characters Showing up in Console Window (Linux) ). 

When I copy the directory & files "43xxx_Wi-Fi/tools/" from SDK6.0 into the SDK6.2 folder, then the console appears fine in the SDK6.2 workspace.

Hello,

Just an update, I have installed WICED 6.2 in multiple linux laptops and only one laptop has this issue of complex characters in console during compilation. I will update the thread when I am able to find the reason and fix

Hello,

This looks like a problem in encoding. Can you try adding the following?

LC_ALL="en_GB.utf8" to /etc/environment

It did not work in my case, but thank you for the suggestion.  There is something else hiding in the SDK6.0 to SDK6.2 transition...

It might be related to the tool chain update. Let me check and get back to you.
