Comment 5 Ngo Than 2004-05-12 10:07:52 EDT
it seems it's a bug in qt, which just ignores Symbol font
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2004-05-21 10:39:09 EDT
it's now fixed in qt-3.3.2-4. It should be in rawhide now
Comment 7 Gerald Teschl 2004-06-03 05:32:19 EDT
I have qt-3.3.2-5 but it still does not work?
Comment 8 Ngo Than 2004-10-28 06:25:53 EDT
it looks like the kformula does not work with the symbol font, but
it works fine with tetex fonts and esstix fonts, For workaround,
please install the esstix fonts.

there's already a bug report in KDE bugzilla.
