Description of problem:
The first time a user starts kde the fonts are nice. After logging out of
kde and restarting X all the fonts are courier.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.add a new user to your system
2.login as that user
4.click 'next' for all that 'customize' your desktop stuff.
5.when kde has finished loading observe the nice fonts.
6.logout of kde.
8.observe the ugly courier that has taken over.
Actual Results: i observed the ugly courier
Expected Results: don't go changing fonts unless the user has configured
it that way
i just updated kde rpm's with the latest from rawhide and still had this
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.
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.
