In addition to setting up PuTTY (in the Translation page) to use
UTF-8, you need to tell Emacs that this is what the terminal supports,
like this:

   C-x RET t utf-8 RET

That's all!  You don't need to set up fonts in Emacs, because,
obviously, fonts are not used by Emacs for displaying TTY frames.  I
don't know about GnomeShell, but I would guess you don't need to
configure its font, either.
