Start KDE from GDM selecting Arabic(Egypt).

Start konsole.

The font is strangely spaced out (proportional?)

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-14 20:35:31 UTC
Cc'ing Owen; basically, for monospace, it's matching the language first, and so
getting the proportional arabic font.

Untargetting, because I have no idea how to fix in fontconfig for
now. I think Arabic users will just have to go into the KDE terminal config 
and change the font to something different.
