           Summary: disables  nroff latin1 bold display with TrueType
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: jason.vas.dias at gmail.com

Version:           Version 2.3 - Using KDE 4.2.70 (KDE 4.2.70 (KDE 4.3 >=
20090415)) (using Devel)
Compiler:          gcc-4.4.1 (20090424) glibc-2.10 (20090514) xserver
(20090514) xlib 20090514 xcb 20090514 qt-copy (4.5) 20090514
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

Having built & installed KDE 4.2 from SVN ( @ 2009-04-30 ) 
with latest tools of same GIT / SVN / CVS vintage ( May 2009 ) 
I find that konsole :
 o Cannot display the less(1) `nroff -Tlatin1'  "Bold Font" - ie.
   $ man man
   does not display any bold font output -
with font "monospace" or font "Andale Mono", both TrueType
fonts, one system (monospace) containing the Bold face,
and one "Andale Mono" for which an "artificial bold face"
was generated . Konsole DOES display "misc-fixed" bold 
nroff latin1 output.

KDE 3.5 konsole has no problems showing nroff -Tlatin1 output with either font.

Is KDE4 console using some other font path or is it ignoring some
font path elements not ignored by KDE 3.5 konsole?
