Description Alexey Dobriyan 2005-03-20 06:05:58 EST
Description of problem:

Typing in russian produce ugly results (see attached screenshot) using (at
least): Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, Courier, LucidaTypewriter, Monospace.

Correct fonts are (at least) Fixed, MiscFixed, console8x16.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
	Qt: 3.3.3
	KDE: 3.3.0-5 Red Hat
	Konsole: 1.4
	KDE font antialiasing is on.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

0. Launch Konsole.
1. Settings->Font->Custom... choose ie Monospace.
2. Type something in English (OK), then in Russian (Urghhh...).
Actual results:

3. Russian letters are "jumping" in horizontal direction as you type.

Additional info:

The problem was also in FC2 (modulo different fonts, maybe).

AFAICS, place occupied by russian glyphs is too wide.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
