Patch to fix correct selectioin of Konsole font
I get rather different fonts here with the patch applied... I'm not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.
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 :)
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()
