Description Ed Marshall 2010-10-29 11:10:07 EDT
gnome-terminal (and, it appears, any other GNOME app) has difficulty rendering MiscFixed SemiCondensed (6x13 bitmap font; the default font for xterm) at 10pt. Choosing "Bold SemiCondensed" or "Oblique SemiCondensed" works as expected, but choosing simply "SemiCondensed" appears to bump the font point down to 9pt.

Entering the gnome-terminal font picker, selecting MiscFixed SemiCondensed 10pt, and clicking OK, then re-entering the font picker shows "Regular" as the current selection, rather than "SemiCondensed". However in gconf, /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/font contains "MiscFixed SemiCondensed 10".

xterm works as expected, so this isn't a system-wide font rendering issue; perhaps just something with GTK?

I suspect this isn't anything specifically related to gnome-terminal, but I'm not entirely sure what component to file it against, and it's the only application I actually care about this font in. My apologies in advance to the gnome-terminal folks; could you reassign this appropriately?

I'm running F14 gold, current as of today, under VirtualBox; this is new since upgrading from F13. I'm happy to do any testing if necessary, and can supply any logs you might need.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 13:17:04 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
