Hi,

This is an old bug from the year 2007. See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=413934

Try setting LANG=POSIX and then retry starting up minicom

If minicom still does not work (after setting LANG=POSIX), then try using cutecom instead

Here is the URL for cutecom: http://cutecom.sourceforge.net/

Regards,

Mark
