default font in gtk-gvim (RH 8.0)
- In Red Hat 8.0, gtk-gvim chooses a default font that displays some
characters, such as "\xab", as double-wide. This can really screw up
the display. :-( I am not sure how to figure out which font is used by
default, but I have added
to my gvimrc file. The "iso10646" part is important. When I tried
various possibilities with
this is the only "adobe-courier" variant that worked, even though the
font-selection dialogue warned that "This is a 2-byte font and may not
be displayed correctly."
I hope that someone who knows more about this than I do can
suggest how to fix it so that vim chooses a more appropriate font OOTB
for RH 8.0 users.
