Running xxfce4-terminal 0.6.2 on Xubuntu 13.04:
Font sizes 13 and 14 points, screen sizes 81 x 22 or whatever is large enough for my aging eyes and small enough to get the effect of a physical VT220.
All the mono-space fonts I've tried so far have simply horrible rendering of the font. Specifically, lower-case letters aren't too bad, although the spacing between letters is rather uneven; however, the rendition of upper-case letters and non-alphanumeric characters such as '@' [that's the worst!] makes them very hard or impossible to read. The glyphs are rendered too far to the left, and overlay the preceding glyph.
Can someone suggest a font choice that is truly mono-spaced? Meaning every character takes the number of pixels required for the fattest character ('M' or '@', probably).
I've tried "Andale Mono," (which is usually very readable), "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono," "DejaVu Sans Mono Book," and "Droid Sans Mono"
Any chance you could provide a screenshot?
What are your font settings set at (Settings Manager -> Appearance -> Fonts tab)? Have you tried adjusting the font rendering?
I've looked at the BBCode helps. I see how to reference an image that's already on the web, but I'm not set up to serve. I hate being such a dunce, but how to I post images here? I don't see any "attach" button.
Or, if your PrtScn button is already configured to give you the option of posting screen (/window) captures to Zimagez(?), just use that.
BtW, do you have anti-aliasing turned on or off?
