Description Will Newton 2001-05-11 19:41:15 EDT
Description of Problem:

Fixed fonts don't work with QT_XFT=1. Setting QT_XFT causes all fixed/bitmap 
fonts to not be rendered.  It is also liable to cause a SIGFPE in XftOpenFont.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install XFree86 4.0.3-x, qt-2.3.0-x, KDE-2.1.x
2.  Go to settings/look and feel/fonts/fixed font
3.  No fonts are available.

Non-Qt apps use fixed fonts OK.

Additional Information:

This bug has been around for a while (a month, maybe more).

The patch:


(not applied in the latest src.rpm)

seems to stop the SIGFPE, but still no fixed fonts are rendered.
