In Scientific Linux 6, Terminal mashes certain letters together.
On investigation, I found that Terminal's RPM had no dependencies.
Ok Scientific Linux has different upstream repositories that people
can point to. You need to find out which repostitory you got that RPM
from because each one could do it differently. The EPEL package of
Terminal shows the following:
[ssmoogen@ponyo ~]$ rpm -q --requires Terminal
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1
I reported this as a bug to Xfce, but they declined it as it is an
problem and not theirs.
Well the issue may be more with the fonts you are using. Looking at
what the dependencies that nautilus brings in I see the following:
config(nautilus-open-terminal) = 0.17-3.el6
[not counting the ton of other stuff.] My first guess will be
and the font you are using is is giving "hints" but without the proper
type packages it can't read the hints so you end up with overlaps.
I will need to see about installing a box without nautilus to see if I
can replicate the issue and figure out what might be needed to pull in
extra font support.
Over on the bug, I added a graphic to show the overlap problem:
And, if you install nautilus-open-terminal, one of its
dependencies solves the Terminal overlap problem.
I have documented nautilus-open-terminal's dependencies
over on the bug report as well.
Would whoever maintains the SL 6 RPM for Terminal
please take a look over at the dug and add the proper
dependencies into the RPM?
