Just upgraded to xorg 11R6.8.0-2 and upon entering fluxbox noticed my fonts had changed. Turns out that the fonts weren't loading. I edited the fluxbox theme file many times to no avail, even if I pointed to the .ttf file explicitly. I was told "Failed to load font: "fontnamehere"
Anyone else experienced this? Downgrading fixed my problem.
You can set your fontpaths in both xorg.conf and /etc/fonts/local.conf .
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
Hmmm... I have something similar. It can't load "Speedo" and a trip to the path shows that the Speedo dir is missing it's fonts. It does contain fonts.cache-1 file. Happened after the upgrade.
Anyone have any ideas?
