XFCE terminal spacing issue?


Hello. I just switched from gnome to XFCE and I'm having a problem with the terminal. The spacing on the letters is really messed up. I changed the font from whatever it was originally to Sans 11px, which is my current system thought, but any font I use, I still get mad overlapping characters.

If noone can suggest a fix for this, can you suggest another terminal emulator I can run? Thanks

I attached a screenshot. Notice "dumpkeys" and "initrd" are almost completely unreadable.

Did you try changing font, antialiasing settings in Appearance->Fonts? Terminal font/antialiasing settings? What's this xfce version?
The fonts on your screenshot everywhere look so horrible my eyes are hurt, you don't really want to leave it that way, believe me.

I strongly suggest changing the Terminal font to a monospaced font. I normally use Liberation Mono; Liberation Sans looks like crap (and a lot like your screenshot)
