Clicking at the first hopeful-looking Google result for "Liberation
Mono", I'd downloaded it from a site called dafont.com. Apparently I
picked up an old version without that problem: 1.04.
Ah, but I installed liberation-fonts-ttf-1.06.0.20100721.tar.gz from
https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/, 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-1.06.0.20100721.tar.gz file from
https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ 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?
