Description of problem:
I have xorg installed on my desktop and my laptop. Both using
Fedora devel latest. I am connected to my desktop from home
using the laptop. I am issuing the command "make xconfig"
from the kernel source directory and I get the xconfig display
open on the laptop where all fonts are some symbol fonts.
I have been doing this for a while in the past and there was no
problem. However, things like xterm, kedit etc. open fine.
I am running KDE as window manager. I am not sure who this
bug belongs to so feel free to reassign if you believe it belongs
to another component.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to a remote machine
2.change to kernel source directory
3.type "make xconfig"
Not a bug! Someone put "symbol" as font into scripts/kconfig/qconf.cc file in
The problem isn't the type "symbol" font, doesn't resolve it if you
delete ~/.qt ~./.font-cache-1, etc.
But try this!
Launch the qtconfig, select Fonts tab, and select for example font
Family Serif, Style normal amd point size 11! Save and your xconfig
will work fine.
the problem is that the font Sans isn't displayed correctly, but I
don't know why :-)
If this doesn't work, turn off also the AntiAlias XFt through the
