Ubuntu Dapper currently comes with DejaVu 2.1.
DejaVu 2.1 is problematic for Greek as the Monospace face is not complete.
DejaVu 2.3 has proper coverage for Greece, and also has updates for 

There are two bugs on this,
1. Bug #31910 in ttf-dejavu (Ubuntu): "Dejavu Sans crashes applications 
for specific characters"
2. Bug #31890 in ttf-dejavu fontconfig (Ubuntu): "Problem with Greek 
text with default font in terminal"

I have not seen much activity on Malone to sort out these bugs. Am I 
doing something wrong here?
I first contacted the ubuntu-devel mailing list and I was directed here, 
as this is the place to solve bugs.

Any hints?
