Description Vladimir Vukicevic 2003-06-19 06:46:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:

The default gnome-terminal font is not able to display utf8 characters, thus
requiring extra fiddling on the part of the user to be able to be able to work
using alternate character sets.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.2.1-3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. adduser test
2. Log in as test via gdm
3. Add the gnome character layout applet to the panel
4. Select Preferences in the char layout panel, and add Serb ->
Serbia/Montenegro -> Serbian xkb layout
5. Open gnome-terminal (right-click New Terminal)
6. Use character set applet to switch to sr.
7. Attempt to type "asdf"

Actual Results:  Little spaces appear

Expected Results:  asdf in the Cyrillic charset should appear, i.e.
асдф

Additional info:

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

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.
