Can you READ? I will write it with big letters so there cannot be any
***PREVIOUS VERSION WORKED***
***WE ALL HAVE GNOME2 WORKING FINE***
With current version you cannot change font AT ALL! Show us your version
of libzvt2.0-0 and gnome-terminal.
ii libzvt2.0-0 2.0.1cvs20021009-1 The GNOME 2 zvt (zterm) widget - runtime files.
ii gnome-terminal 2.0.1-2 The GNOME 2 terminal emulator application
And it writes at startup:
The font "-xos4-terminus-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1" does not support all the required character sets for the current locale "en_GB.UTF-8"
(Missing character set "JISX0208.1983-0")
(Missing character set "KSC5601.1987-0")
(Missing character set "GB2312.1980-0")
(Missing character set "JISX0201.1976-0")
So it tries to use that font, but terminal shows with stupid ugly default
font and it cannot be changed to anything :(
