I tried to send this once before, but the crazy windows server here at
work seems to think I have a new e-mail address. Interesting.
As an end result I joined and then got told my message was going to the
moderator. So, I'll try this and see if it gets through without the
moderator because I need some help asap!
I just fouled up big time. I was working on making some posters, and
decided to download some new fonts. I used kcontrol to install them as
administrator. BIG MISTAKE! This screwed things up royally. I can't
launch. I get this as an error:
Fatal Server Error
Could not open default font 'fixed'
I installed the fonts into the directory: /usr/local/share/fonts/TTF
I have tried the following. I deleted them, and ran mkfontdir
I pulled out my CD's and reinstalled all of X with the following
rpm -Uvh -force X*
I bumped down to init 3 and then back up to 5 and still the same issue.
I even tried linking in the TTF directory.
I don't know what to do, but I've got to get this thing going again.
Honestly, even a hack would be appreciated at this point.
PS. Don't use kcontrol 3.2.1 to install fonts as root. Or you might
wind up using a windows machine to beg for help........
