Description Peter Quiring 2006-01-08 20:57:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060103 Fedora/1.5-4 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
Certain apps (xmms-1.2.10 & Xdialog1.0) display only boxes with the font they select.  It seems that somewhere a font is missing or configured wrongly.  Not sure which package the problem relates to.

In XMMS if I fumble blindly thru the preferences I can change the font and then it's legible.  Looks like just the default font is bad.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install older programs (XMMS, Xdialog for instance)
2.Each char of font is displayed as a box.

Actual Results:  See boxes.

Expected Results:  See chars.
