math symbols not displaying

Discussion in 'Python' started by Andrew Dabrowski, Jul 15, 2006.

  1. I'm working on a simple Python program, with Tkinter, and I need to
    display the math symbols for set union and intersection, in unicode
    \N{N-ARY UNION} and \N{N-ARY INTERSECTION}. Everything was displaying
    correctly (when I ran the program) until I changed my OS distribution
    from SuSE to Ubuntu. Now those two symbols are not being displayed. I'm
    not getting any error messages, there are simply blank spaces where the
    symbols should be. Any ideas what the problem could be? I'm using Gnome
    under Ubuntu 6.06.

    The glyphs have to be present in the font that is used. Fonts that should
    contain almost all mathematical characters are in the `latex-xft-fonts`
    package.
