When I would like to switch to another Font in an gnome-terminal, I can not
them. I have the following error-message:

Gdk-WARNING **: Missing charsets in FontSet creation

Gdk-WARNING **:     ISO8859-15

Gdk-WARNING **:     ISO8859-15

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal
2. "Einstellungen" 
3. Schriftarten, Auswdhlen
4. take to another Font
5. no effect in terminal

Actual Results:  Gdk-WARNING **: Missing charsets in FontSet creation

Gdk-WARNING **:     ISO8859-15

Gdk-WARNING **:     ISO8859-15

What happens if you toggle the "Use multibyte support" (something like that)
option in preferences?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-04-27 13:51:22 EDT
No effect with _Use multibyte support_

Than I use  xterm and take  Ctrl + right-mouse for font huge. After this I have
to go back to gnome-terminal and... ups now the actual font in gnome-terminal is
bigger, and the function 
for select font  in preferences was reddy

Same problem here. Solved changing default setting for environment 
variable LANG (/etc/sysconfig/i18n) from it_IT@euro to it_IT. 
Annoying bug: it_IT@euro is the default value set on 7.1 italian

Apparently there are not installed fonts supporting ISO-8859-15
(latin 1 with euro symbol support).

gnome-terminal is in gnome-core
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-12 14:36:03 EDT
I think the only bug here is that the installer sets locale to @euro, or
alternatively that we lack fonts for @euro. gnome-terminal can't do anything 
if there are no fonts in the current encoding.

fixed with current XFree; we have iso-8895-15 fonts now.
