Comment 4 Ngo Than 2004-04-21 11:34:12 EDT
strange, i cannot reproduce this problem with FC2test2. it works for me.

Does the other qt apps (designer, qtconfig) have this problem?
Comment 5 Knut J BJuland 2004-04-21 13:51:30 EDT
Other qt apps works okay, perhaps I am missing a font. Could you tell
me which font make xconfig need. 
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2004-04-22 08:24:05 EDT
it shoubd be Sans, qconf just uses the default Qt font which you could
change with qtconfig!
