Description of problem:
This is not really gnome-core, but there was not a component listing for

With the gnome-terminal included with redhat 7.2, it ignores font changes
when the "clean" font is selected.  Other fonts seem to work.   Problem has
existed in all RH7.2 installations (3 so far).

This font worked correctly in RH 7.1

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start gnome-terminal, edit prefs.
2. select "clean" and change the size to say, 12pt.

Actual Results:  Nothing.

Expected Results:  Fort should change slightly and get smaller.

Additional info:

It's annoying, and surprising.  "clean" is my favorite terminal font.

What is your locale set to?

Comment 2 Brad Silva 2001-11-02 00:23:21 UTC
I installed it with the default "us" settings.  My LANG Envvar 
is set to "en_US".

I hope that helps.

BTW, as a work around, "fixed(misc)" works pretty well.

The "enable multibyte" option may cause this to work - problem may be that you
don't have the right encoding selected for the font (on the last tab of the font
selector, should be iso8859-1 for en_US), in multibyte mode then the charset
doesn't matter. We do have enable multibyte turned on by default though...

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-25 23:16:13 UTC
Please reopen if you add a comment giving the status of the "use multibyte" option.

Comment 5 Kjartan Maraas 2004-03-29 20:46:15 UTC
GNOME 1.x is no longer maintained. Multibyte handling should be much
improved in later GNOME releases anyway.
