Summary0007138: Qterminal not showing certain characters after full-upgrade
DescriptionEver since Kali switched to Zsh in late 2020 (which was a great choice), every time I update the system after installing qterminal stops showing certain characters. Namely, the character between the user and the hostname for both the regular user and the root user.

Is this a Kali bug, a Qterminal bug? Is there a way to fix this? I've tried reinstalling Qterminal and it does not solve the issue.
Steps To Reproduce0. Install latest Kali ISO

1. 'sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade'

2. Reboot or log out then back in.

3. Qterminal should now have stopped showing the star in a circle character in the terminal.

Hello. This is an issue with qterminal and noto fonts.
Try removing them with `sudo apt remove fonts-noto-core`

Sees the patch fixed the issue with emojis but the issue with the non-root prompt persists.
