Ahhh, I just noticed something....

In step 4, I incorrectly wrote just click next all the way through.  On one of 
the screens it asks you something about how many 'bells and whistles' do you 
want KDE to have.  There is a little slider on the screen.  I had been 
dragging this to the max.  Doing so causes this problem.  If you don't do 
that, and accept the default, courier font is not thrust upon you.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-18 10:49:31 UTC
This is because bitmapped fonts (e.g. Helvetica, Times) can't be antialiased, 
and the hightest Eye-Candy setting enables anti-aliasing.
You need to have suitable fonts for this to work:
Install the urw-fonts and ttfonts packages
Update qt to 2.3.1-3 (rawhide)
and it'll work.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2009-08-24 21:49:51 UTC
