Hello,

I am having some problems with the xfce4-terminal fonts. This is how it looks. I think it's an xfce4-terminal problem but it's so weird. Lightdm, i3status and google-chrome displays the right fonts but as you can see in the image xfce4-terminal doesn't, but only in the terminal, so this is how the xfce4-terminal options looks like.

I don't know what's happening xd

Thanks.

[Edit]
Same happens with deepin-terminal

In x11-terms/st works well.

Hi pakillo,

welcome to the Gentoo forums!

Thanks for posting your screenshot. I just installed xfce4-terminal and I get the same garbled output. :-(

But it's just a font problem. :-)

Check 'Use system font' OR choose a different font than 'Monospace'. Just make sure it's a monospaced font. Don't use proportional fonts.

I use 'Source Code Pro Regular, 10pt'. You could also try 'Hack Regular', 'Liberation Mono Regular' or any variant of 'Courier'.

Mike

Maybe those two wiki pages could help or provide at least some more info about the whole font topic:
