Re: Unstable upgrade caused SOME fonts to go away.
Just to follow up to my previous question:
I got a little help from the folks on the #debian-kde IRC channel and they
suggested backing up some packages.
I started doing that, but it was messy, so, since I am running under VMWare, I
went back to a previous, working snapshot, and started upgrading packages one at
The culprit is xserver-xfree86. Nothing KDE/QT involved at all -- though it
does just seem to affect QT controls.
Now I'm thinking maybe it's an xserver-xfree86 / VMWare interaction.
Can someone suggest where I might ask about what changed between xserver-xfree86
Versions 4.2.1-10 and 4.2.1-11? I'm already following up with VMWare, but I'd
like to tackle it from both sides.
Thanks to those that contacted me with help.
