this puts me back exactly to the state where the
font letters are missing. like right now i am
typing this in Gnome Terminal 126.96.36.199-1 and gnome-
panel 3.2.1-2+b1 using slrn.
the gnome-panel up above is missing the word
"Activities" completely, to the right a little it
has the icon for the terminal "T m al", the clock
in the center shows "7" and the rightmost part says
to get it to display correctly i have to again
click the accessibility icon (that is not displayed
until i hover over it) and clicking "L rg T xt" and
then again clicking "Large Text" (to turn it back
to normal font). then all is well again.
if i knew how to automatically include these
steps in the desktop startup i could try that,
but i'm not a gnome wizard.
thanks for your reply,
