I have Lucida Sans Typewriter font installed in my KDE and I can easily use it as text font in my Eclipse. However, this font isn't shown in monospaced fonts list when I am selecting a font for Konsole or in systemsettings.

It is possible, of course, to edit ~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/Shell.profile and ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals, but is there another way? By the way, why the system does not recognize Lucida Sans Typewriter as monospaced font?

Donwloading the Lucida Sans Typewriter Regular font file (LTYPE.TTF) from the net.

System Settings > System Administration: Font Installer; Add.

The Lucinda Sans Typewriter is under the Personal Fonts.
