Emacs21.4a-6: characters display as empty boxes
I am running Debian Linux unstable on a Pc. I upgraded
yesterday and ran
into trouble with the xorg system. So I had to remove x11-common,
and dselect removed a lot of files. However I was able to recover.
Now, Xemacs and all other programs seem to work OK, but emacs (in the
X windows) opens up but all the characters show up as empty boxes.
What packages have I fogotten to install? It does not appear to be
an essential package, because emacs21 installed without any trouble.
There was a report about a bug in font display, and suggesting the
ipe package. I installed this and it made no difference.
I have gdm as the display manager.
The emacs packages I have installed are: emacs21-bin-common,
emacsen-common, emacs21 emacs21-common and emnacs21-el.
Thanks for any suggestions.
