The following works for me:

// Ask for a fixed-width font. The problem is that these names wary 
across platforms,
// but the following works well -- at first, we come up with a made-up 
name, and then
// let the Qt font substitution algorithm do its magic.
QFont font(QString::fromAscii("x-trojita-terminus-like-fixed-width"));

With kind regards,
