[SOLVED] fontconfig-2.10.92-4, Scrabbled Fonts..

The recent fontconfig update has my fonts in a complete mess. Is all scrabbled.
I provide two screenshots to show you what I mean..

Previous to updating fontconfig,

After updating fontconfig,

So far the only solution I've had was downgrading fontconfig.. But there has to be a different way? Any idea what could be causing this.. It screws with all my fonts, from terminals to gtk applications.

Log out of xorg, then run as root:

fc-cache -rf

To recreate fontconfig's cache files.

Check your rules in /etc/fonts/conf.d/

Maybe you have a rule for e.g. embeddedbitmap - could be that embeddedbitmap is now disabled.

Strangely enough, the new fontconfig wants to install 10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf, which it itself moans about! So, personally, I just delete that weird file - I don't use bitmap fonts anyway.

Turns out 10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf was the source. So I removed it. The problem is now Fixed. Thanks for the help Brebs! smile

Please file a bug on the Arch bugzilla. I would, but I don't actually use Arch - I just pinched Arch's new fontconfig because I was curious smile
