please update urw-fonts-2.0-13 from rawhide and tell me if this problen is fixed.
Comment 2 Leonid Kanter 2001-10-15 14:37:45 EDT
I'm already using urw-fonts with cyrillic glyphs, but it doesn't matter. There
is wrong QT call somewhere in embedded kwrite, we are trying to figure out, but
with no success yet. In search fields and other forms everything is OK, problem
exists in editor window only.
