I have a strange issue with my Monospace font, that only seems to
up in Konsole. I first discovered this over the weekend (Sunday I
believe), and I thought I had it fixed.
When I first saw the issue, I even went so far as to create a Virtual
machine, apply all the updates, add the KDE-Unstable repo, and apply
the Infinality font patches I run to recreate my setup exactly, and
took a screenshot  showing that in the VM the fonts looked fine,
but on my workstation they looked 'different'.
After doing that, at some point I rebooted my desktop, and I thought
initially that it was fixed, but I think I had opened and closed a
Konsole session before noticing, because now I see that the first time
I open Konsole, my fonts are still showing differently , but if I
close Konsole and open it right back, the issue goes away . If I
open multiple Konsole windows, I have to close them all and reopen
before the fonts will look normal. It even seems the gui fonts
displaying on the Menu bar are slight different as well.
This is on my home PC. My work PC, also with Fedora 17, KDE Unstable
enabled and the Infinality patches enabled doesn't have this
behavior...and neither does my laptop, only this one machine.
Does the dpi of the display that X reports differ between the machines? The
last time I have seen strange font sizes it was because the reported dpi of
the display differed from the default 96x96. You can check with
xdpyinfo | grep -B1 dot
That would not explain why it differs between restarts of Konsole, but is the
first thing you should check.
