Comment 1 Kevin DeKorte 2006-03-25 11:45:24 EST
Description of problem:
I'm not sure if this is the right component, but when selecting DejaVu font as
the "Application Font", the Te charcters overlap way to much

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to System->Preferences->Fonts (BTW, what is the warning dialog that pops up
and disappers when you select this dialog)
2.Select DejaVu Sans Book 9 as the font 
3.Look under the Applications->Accessories
Look at the Take Screen Shot, Terminal entries. You'll see that they are over
lapping too much. 
Actual results:
T bar should not touch the e

Expected results:

Proper kerning

Additional info:

This did not happen with the initial install of FC5, it seems to have appeared
when dejavu-fonts-fontconfig was updated.

Also see the attached screenshot and look at the "Terminal" menu bar and look at
the capital T character.

Appears to be a bug in the DejaVu 2.4 fonts...

See this thread...
