OK, in master just now I undid the change that caused text-quoting-style to affect how quotes are displayed; they are now independent issues again.

They appear identical to the ASCII quotes.  (Yes, I have the latest
version of Emacs).

I think that was because you used emacs -Q, so your .emacs was not consulted. In master just now I installed something that works for me on the Linux console even when emacs -Q is used. It does this by inspecting the Linux console font position table. I tested it on fonts that display curved quotes unambiguously, on fonts that display them ambiguously with ASCII, and on fonts that don't display them at all. Please give it a try.

If the above does not work, please try running this with the current master:

(startup--setup-quote-display 'grave)

and then type C-l to refresh the display.
