Re: font fix found, but how to make it stick?
I found this to be quite informative:
My best fix so far has been to wipe any ISO10646 font files that
also come in an ISO8859 version by doing this:
# delete the files listed here...
find /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts \
| grep ISO8859-1 | egrep '/misc|(75|100)dpi/' \
| sed -e 's/-ISO8859-1//' |
while read f; do
[ ! -f $f ] && continue
zcat $f | grep -q ISO10646 && echo $f
for fdir in misc 75dpi 100dpi ; do
It fixes my app. I have not found any broken apps yet...
