Can you give us a specific font that comes with the distribution that 
we should test with?
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-02-24 14:15:37 EST
This is pretty much expected; you have to use a fixed-width font to
get crrect display.

(There was a bug with the "Terminal Font" setting in the font-properties
dialog that would have made it easy to trigger this; that's fixed 
now.)

OK,

maybe a stupid mistake, but can the user in some way be prevented to make this
mistake?

Also, new to phoebe3, the default fonts for ro_RO.UTF-8 locale ( used to be
iso8859-2 ) are very large. gnome terminal uses all the screen width ( 1024x768
) and half of the height. gEdit has the same font.

The font settings from phoebe2 were great.
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-10 16:50:54 EST
Hi Tom,

The font dialog presented by the terminal properties dialog doesn't currently
support the ability to filter out non fixed width fonts.

The upstream bug report is here:
