Summary: Putty unusable until font changed or Courier New
installed. Font mapping not respecing fixed-width
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: dank at kegel.com
As part of my dogfood testing, I'm trying to live with
Putty on wine instead of using windows ssh.
putty's default font settings are unusable with
Wine's default fonts. Particular problems are the
'm' and 'w' glyphs, which Putty seems to think are
half as wide as they really are; when you type 'm'
at the putty username prompt, it looks as if you typed 'n'
because the block cursor obscures the right half of the glyph.
0. Wipe out ~/.wine as usual when testing new apps
1. install putty-0.58, e.g. by running
2. try logging in to localhost, and typing the letters of the alphabet.
Observe that 'm' and 'w' run over the cell width.
The workaround is either
a) in putty, click on Window / Appearance / Font Settings / Change,
and pick a font that is installed instead of the default Courier New
b) install courier font from http://corefonts.sf.net, e.g. by running
Neither of these should really be needed, should they?
Is Wine mapping Courier New to a variable-width font? That'd be just plain wrong...
