I recently did an apt-get upgrade on my i386 etch system and now the
font rendering in icedove and firefox seems to be broken. For example,
in my list of emails I onlt see the subject and other text information
about the email when i click on the email. In firefox, I have to drag
the window off the screen the back on again to be able to see the web
page. Openofice seems to work fine. The gnome console also has problems.
Xterm is fine.
Can anyone suggest how I can get this foxed? I tried creating a new user
and testing with a fresh gnome config but that did not work - the fonts
behaved the same. I tried an upgrade to unstable and a reboot to refresh
all the cached libraries etc (slightly superstitious), that didn't fix
Looks like it's a problem with the nvidia binary driver groan. I have switched to nv and now the fonts are fine. Must be some mismatch between the libs i compiled against when I installed the nvidia driver and the libs that got installed when i did the upgrade.
So I should probably install the nvidia drivers 'the debian way' to avoid this kind of problem.
yes - I have now installed the nvidia binary driver using module
assistant and the fonts are looking fine.
Followed the instructions here:
Well I can stop talking to myself in public now.
