I understand that only fixed-width fonts work with konsole, but I still want konsole to have an option to select any font, because there are cases where konsole doesn't recognize fixed-width fonts as such:


A case in point is the "kappa 20-dot font", which is a fixed-width font, and I've been using this font on emacs for years.  As mentioned in the posting cited above, this may indeed be a bug on the part of the font.  I submitted a bug report to the author of the font but haven't heard anything from him. (The font is very old and the author may not be active any longer.)

In such a case, it doesn't matter whose bug this is.  The fact remains that a potentially useful font cannot be used on konsole while it is used on other terminal programs.
