Hey guys,

I've been trying to solve this problem ever since I did an upgrade on my system. Currently, I'm running KDE 3.2 in Sarge and ever since I did the upgrade, I've been having this weird font problem with the "login manager." You can view the screen shot at http://www.dolda2000.com/~bpark/snapshot5.png.

I also was checking out /etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers and noticed that the first line (that's not commented) looks like this:
:0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp vt7

as where the old file looked like:
:0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 75 -nolisten tcp vt7

I actually like the new file better since fonts are bigger but I have a strong suspicion that this is causing the weird font error. I'm open to any suggestions on how to fix this problem. As I really don't know that much about how KDE operates, please realize that this is the reason why I have posted this problem. Any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.


The most recent upgrade also turned anti-aliasing off for the
greeter.  Perhaps that has something to do with the ugliness.

Alternate theory: I had turned anti-aliasing on manually; the defaults
haven't changed.  The file is /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc.

The problem was resolved when I logged in as the root user and tweaked the fonts. Because I have never logged in as root previously (I usually never do with KDE), it wasn't using antialised fonts as where my normal user account does.

Really, thanks guys. I didn't know why I didn't think about that but nontheless, the problem is solved for now. Thanks again.
