Comment 1 Don Swaner 2016-08-03 14:17:08 UTC
Running a "reset" command fixes the problem.

Comment 2 Don Swaner 2016-08-03 15:17:18 UTC
"reset" must be run each time after using fontopia.

Actually this turned out to be a bug in GnuDOS package, not fontopia.
I posted a bugfix update for GnuDOS through Bodhi ( This should fix the problem.
