I tried this and it doesn't work for me either. It substitutes something else.
I think that KDE/Qt now substitutes scalable fonts except for the default
You can install a special version of Courier called MS LineDraw which is a
TrueType font and supports DOS characters. This comes as a self extracting EXE
file: "gc0651.exe". Google for the file name to find a place to download it.
cabextract -L -d . GC0651.EXE
Then move the font file: "linedraw.ttf" to your TrueType directory.
The mono spaced TrueType fonts:
are supposed to support DOS CP437. You might want to try them as well.
