Ugh, sorry, it's too early in the morning, I see you already said that. Oops. :) You can get the fonts from a really old kdebase tarball, for example: ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/Attic/2.2.2/src/kdebase-2.2.2.tar.bz2 Contains: kdebase-2.2.2/konsole/fonts/9x15.pcf.gz kdebase-2.2.2/konsole/fonts/console8x16.pcf.gz kdebase-2.2.2/konsole/fonts/console8x8.pcf.gz HTH :)
