Try to compare the font settings both at the console display and at the Xvnc
display: `xset -q`. Then update the fontpath at the problem side. (best on
the fly with `xset`: first add the font directories to see the possible
errors, then update the Xvnc call.
Detail here: Xvnc is not capable to display all fonts properly. If this
happens to be the problem, find a proper substitute font and configure the
Konsole program to use that one.
