Re: 'Applications -> Preferences -> Font' not working.

Thanks, I understood you correctly but I thought it worth a try.

Nevertheless, after todays 'dist-upgrade', the Applications -> Preferences panel works !

[... probably a dependency upgrade problem]

Thanks guys,

Oops, sorry if my previous reply wasn't clear.  The relevant package is
"libmetacity0", not metacity.

Is libmetacity0 installed on your system?  Is it listed as 'broken'
(non-configured)?  What version of the package is installed?

Are the following files present on your system?

$ dpkg -S libmetacity-private
libmetacity0: /usr/lib/libmetacity-private.so.0
libmetacity0: /usr/lib/libmetacity-private.so.0.0.0

You can try configuring or re-installing libmetacity0, or (if those
files are present but still not working) try running "ldconfig" as root.

All necessary packages *should* be installed automatically by the
dependency system.  However, if an error during a "dist-upgrade" went
unnoticed, it could prevent some necessary packages from being fully
installed or configured.
