I'm running Arch Linux with simple terminal using the Adobe Source Code Pro font. My locale is correctly set to
I want to print Unicode characters representing playing cards to my terminal. I'm using Wikipedia for reference.
The Unicode characters for card suits work fine. For example, issuing
$ printf "\u2660"
prints a black heart to the screen.
However, I'm having trouble with specific playing cards. Issuing
$ printf "\u1F0A1"
prints the symbol
?1 instead of the ace of spades ??. What's going wrong?
This problem persists across several terminals (urxvt, xterm, termite) and every font I've tried (DejaVu, Inconsolata).
