I get rather different fonts here with the patch applied... I'm not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.
Comment 3 Malte Cornils 2005-01-20 12:45:20 UTC
With Medium font size setting, do you get the same font as is used by xterm?
One could also special case the default font case so that it only requires SemiCondensed for 13 pts. However, it would be great to know whether the current font fallback mechanism is intentional, i.e. whether it's a good or bad thing :)

Comment 4 Kurt Hindenburg 2005-02-12 20:00:05 UTC
As of a few days ago, Konsole now uses KGlobalSettings::fixedFont(); for the fixed font.

You can set this in KControl->Appearance->Fonts

See http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98865 for the report about using fixedFont()
