Description Henri Ala-Peijari 2006-01-23 21:54:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When launching emacs the characters are unreadable and following errors are reported:

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use FC5test2
2.from shell, run emacs

Actual Results:  Emacs X-window was unreadable

Expected Results:  Emacs working

Additional info:

I hope the Fedora "install everything" button comes back, it's a pain to manually go through all the selections and find the software that doesn't install without manually adding it.

Unfortunately the font fix missed test2...

... and everything installs often lead to problems.  Basically noone really needs
to install everything: using Everything to get one's favourite couple of apps
installed is not the Right Thing, but if you want to complain about it better
to look for anaconda bugs about it or post on fedora-test list. :)
I would imagine it has already been discussed at length though.
