I am using the .fon ones (http://font.gohu.org/gohufont-windows-2.0.zip)
I never tried to start mintty manually, I am using the standard
desktop shortcut which starts "C:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe -i
I just tried this:
mintty -o Font=gohufont-14 -
which does produce the warning as you can see in this screenshot:
I *did* remove my .minttyrc font setting prior to doing that test, so
"mintty -" does not produce any warning and "mintty -o
Font=gohufont-14 -" does produce a warning.
Do you think I should try another one? If yes, I can either test all
the installable ones or only one if you want me to test only one.
PS: starting "mintty -o Font=GohuFont" or "mintty -o Font=gohufont"
fails with a "font not found, using a substitute" error
