I can verify this behavior here. I guess the terminus font package does
not contain the necessary glyphs and therefore another font is used as a
substitute (looks like monospace).

Interestingly, when I download the TrueType version from this site [1]
and test it in KDE's font viewer, the letters look correct. I guess you
could install that version manually. In this case, please file a bug on Maybe that version can be merged into the
terminus ebuild.


Hope this helps,
