Thanks for looking into this, I don't exactly know where to look for it, but the font
is not accessed.
For example, my sylpheed (mailer) has the following preferences to display my e-mail (in
On my F30 machine, which is where I am typing from, the font displays just fine. On my
F31 (which was upgraded from F30 last Friday), I get blocks of garbage characters. See:
So, OK, this could be a sudden F31 issue with sylpheed. However, I don't think so
because I get the same problem with sakura (terminal) which has the same font. See:
Something is off in F31: I have the same packages installed as before (this was a clean
upgrade, with no notifications, errors or warnings).
Ok, that's what I was looking for. The funny thing is that I had just
been reading about how Pango can no longer use bitmap fonts like that.
I suspect that's what happened. There is some way to convert the bitmap
font to open type which can be used. I suggest doing a search for
"pango bitmap fonts" to see a lot of discussion about this and how to
work around it.
