Konsole and Yakuake strange spacing

Fresh install of MX23 with KDE 5.27 on a Lenovo thinkpad.
Anything typed into or displayed in response to input on either of these terminals has extra spacing between cursor and text. Not a problem on my other two machines running MX23 and Tux.

Your fontconfig file is messed up. This is the distro’s responsibility to do correctly; I’d recommend talking to the MX Linux people about it.

Thanks, I have posted on their forum, and will either wait to hear back or will reinstall. It’s a new install, so not much to lose. Seems to run fine off the USB stick.
I’m wondering if it’s because I installed as an encrypted system. I have a couple other issues I’ve never seen with this distro.
