Re: No Helvetica in KDE (Sid)

Thank you,

but I don't think there's something wrong with fonts.conf, because GTK and 
Motif apps as well as OpenOffice have no problem displaying Helvetica. It 
seems to be a KDE-only problem!

Sorry, I should have mentioned that before...



PS: Of course I've tried fc-cache but nothing has changed.
