New users get the right fonts.

Comment 5 Drake Philbrook 2002-10-23 13:55:46 UTC
This problem exhibits itself when you open a KDE terminal window.  Changing the 
font helps but still leaves artifacts and characters are not displayed with the 
right spacing.

Resizing the window cleans up the existing content but new typing still is 

The problem does not exist if you open an xterm window.

FYI, I *think* many or most of the terminal font issues are fixed when/if one upgrades 
to kde-3.1. 

Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2004-03-02 14:27:32 UTC
So is this still a problem in Fedora Core 1?

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-04 20:09:42 UTC
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
