on top of it.
A sum sign
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 (also tried LANG=en_US, but it made no difference)
Still present in koffice-1.2.1-11
Still present in 1.2.1-14
Still present in koffice-1.2.1-15
Still present in koffice-1.3-6
it seems it's a bug in qt, which just ignores Symbol font
it's now fixed in qt-3.3.2-4. It should be in rawhide now
I have qt-3.3.2-5 but it still does not work?
it looks like the kformula does not work with the symbol font, but
it works fine with tetex fonts and esstix fonts,

please install the esstix fonts.
there's already a bug report in KDE bugzilla.
