Description Bryan Wright 2001-11-01 09:20:22 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686)

Description of problem:
The arioso font is the default for kate and kedit in RH 7.2.  This is a
cursive, proportional
font, and is generally unreadable for editing text files.  It may be that
the intended font is
just missing, and 'arioso' is being picked because it's the first in the

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install redhat 7.2
2. Open a file with 'kate' (or kedit)
