Actually, like so many others I am using the Windows fonts (all of 
them). I believe there are som fixed width fonts among them. I have used 
Lucinda Console .ttf font in Konsole before in 2.2.2 with great results.

I can select "Courier New" in toolbar and such, but it doesnt say 
"Courier New [Monotype]"

Maybe one must mark them in som special way to become [Monotype] fonts 
(in the XftConfig file maybe?). I found no obvious way to do that from 
the font installer in KDE Control Center. If this is the case then maybe 
this is more of a feature request than a bug report.
