No reaction in more than a month.

Closing as a possible configuration or downstream (distribution) issue.

no comment in 2-3 weeks.  can the original poster confirm whether switching to a monospaced font fixed the problem?  is it reproducible in a newer version of Octave? can anyone else confirm this behavior with non-monospaced fonts and should that be investigated further?

Try to select some monospace font (Edit -> Preferences -> Command -> Font).

I just installed the official version using the software installer that comes with Linux Mint 21. The attached images shows that I entered the string 2+2 but the ending 2 is not visible and gets chopped in half.
