scroll to bring more font names into view) and what is called Monospace
on your computer is what you showed in the gvim screenshot, then it
means there is _no_ monospaced font on your computer that gvim can see
(that font in the gvim screenshot isn't a monospace font: it's a
proportional sans-serif font, maybe "DejaVu Sans" but not "DejaVu Sans
Mono" which would be the "real" monospaced font in the same family).
So, you could either complain to your sysadmin, that there is no
fixed-width typewriter-like font that you can reach from gvim…
…or use console vim. Or, on Linux, use gvim in console mode by means of
a softlink, to make sure you have a full-featured Console Vim with X11
ln -sv `which vim` vim-orig
ln -sv `which gvim` vim
