Nope, sorry.

Clicking at the first hopeful-looking Google result for "Liberation
Mono", I'd downloaded it from a site called Apparently I
picked up an old version without that problem: 1.04.
I installed and use from Fedora 14 without problems.
Ah, but I installed liberation-fonts-ttf- from, and *DID* see the problem.
That is, after installation, Liberation Mono did not show up in mintty's
font selection window.
That's interesting.  I just hacked a simple test application which
calls ChooseFont.  The Liberation Mono font from F14 returns 0x31
in the LOGFONT lfPitchAndFamily member, so it's marked as fixed font.

The liberation-fonts-ttf- file from returns 0x32, so it's marked
as variable font.  This is certainly a packaging bug.

FYI, I reported this as a packaging bug upstream:

BTW, is there an easy way to get the F14 version of the font if I don't have an F14 machine handy? Or, alternatively, is there an easy way to hack the .ttf files so they correctly claim to be fixed-pitch?
