Description: Vera font family derivate with additional characters
DejaVu provides an expanded version of the Vera font family aiming for quality and broader Unicode coverage while retaining the original Vera style. DejaVu currently works towards conformance with the Multilingual European Standards (MES-1 and MES-2) for Unicode coverage. The DejaVu fonts provide serif, sans
 and monospaced variants.

DejaVu fonts are intended for use on low-resolution devices (mainly computer
 screens) but can be used in printing as well.

The Upgrading commands I use are: aptitude update -> aptitude dist-upgrade -> aptitude autoclean -> updatedb.

( I pretty much use aptitude for installs and such. On occasion if I'm in a hurry I'll purge using synaptic and may d a reinstall right away to check to see if that would clear up a problem. Sometimes it does.)

Had a problem w. the IceApe browser closing when I tried to scroll or even open some pages. And it would not open a particular email sent from Earthlink but it turned out it was not Earthlinks problem. The sender used different fonts and probably the dangling font.

The two files that the IceApe maintainer found to be the problem(dangling links) are:




I have removed these two files/fonts from my system and everything is back working now.

On Tuesday, 08/22, I did my normal weekly dist-upgrade and don't remember having any problems after that but I don't remember what time of day I did the upgrade. I also did another dist-upgrade the next day for some silly reason and don't remember experiencing any problems but after I did a third dist-upgrade of the week on Thurs. I started having problems, big time. I would go to a site or clik on a page and the browser would close w. no warning and no error reported. It was a constant thing.

It was recommended that I do a debsums ttf-dejavu and it turned out OK.

It was also recommended that I send you this output from

Hope this helps. I don't understand the half-configured or the half-installed part at all. The crazy thing is that on very rare occasion prior to upgrading.

Let me know if I can be of help.

According to dpkg(1) manpage, "half-installed" and  "half-configured" states do not mean any
particular error, as long as the installation terminates with no problem (i.e. it
goes through the "installed" state - which is the case according to the log included
with the original post)
