requiring extra fiddling on the part of the user to be able to be able to work
using alternate character sets.

Steps to Reproduce:

5. Open gnome-terminal (right-click New Terminal)
6. Use character set applet to switch to sr.
7. Attempt to type "asdf"

Additional info:

If the font is changed in the profile, (i.e. to Fixed), the characters appear.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-10-04 06:08:47 UTC
The default font is a global setting so the bug would be against fontconfig

I think the problem though is vte not doing fontsetting, which should be fixed
in rawhide.

This should be fixed now.
