Comment 1 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2009-02-04 15:20:30 UTC
As I am now actually using F-10 on a day-to-day basis, I will be able to fix this issue.

This might not be fixed in this (old) "terminus-font" package, though, as the package needs to be renamed to fit in with Fedora's new guidelines on naming and packaging fonts.

Comment 2 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2009-02-18 09:42:58 UTC
The Gnome terminal (using the new and slow font rendering magic) can use terminus.

emacs and xterm (apparently using the old and quick font rendering magic) cannot.

This gives a better idea as to where to look.
