Sorry, I don't have that option.

That is strange, because it works for me with Courier 10 Pitch but not 
with "Dejavu Sans Mono".
I also copied all fonts over from my old system and installed them with "Font 
Installer" in the Control Center via Administrator Mode and user mode, but I 
still cannot choose the same fonts as I could on my old system.
Looks like there is something wrong with my KDE installation, does anybody 
know which part I have to reinstall to fix this?
