Yes, character set, sorry, my mistake.
But I'm using extended characters that are in the second page of Unicod, which 
is not the same to iso8859-1.

I've checked the Numbus fonts, I have checked them before... they are free:
$ emerge search urw-fonts
[ Results for search key : urw-fonts ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]

*  media-fonts/urw-fonts
      Latest version available: 2.1-r2
      Latest version installed: 2.1-r2
      Size of downloaded files: 3,710 kB
      Description: free good quality fonts gpl'd by URW++
      License:     GPL-2

but, for some reason, KDE things that Nimbus Mono L is not a Monotype or 
Monospace font, so, I can choose it for the Monospace font in kcontrol, 
because it only let me choose monotype fonts. :(
Maybe it is a bug in the font, or a bug in KDE, I don't know.
