This means your computer has no font supporting those characters; thus this isn't really a bug in gucharmap. U+A75B is the R rotunda; I believe the Gentium font supports it (install package ttf-sil-gentium if you need this character).

This means your computer has no font supporting those characters; thus this isn't really a bug in gucharmap. Showing the character code allows advanced users to look them up and install relevant fonts if desired. (Try searching U+xxxx on Google.)

Can you help with this problem?
