Thread: Font missing or changed?

  1. #1

    Default Font missing or changed?

    After the upgrade from 12.2 to 12.3 the Firefox menu has switched to a monospace(? fixed width) font.

    Something I did? Something I didn't do? Something that can be done?

    Try creating a new user and check whether you see a better menu in that
    new profile . if yes then come back your old user and rename .mozilla
    folder in home folder and start firefox.

    Didn't help.

    It works correctly as root. Which is the only one who can log in with gnome as the wm.
    So somewhere in the mists of gnome is buried my problem.

    Video driver related?
    Please login to a different WM (IceWM f.e.) as user, install the package "Mesa-demo-x" and post the output of:
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep render

    should not do that...not even to check to see if it works ok as
    root....why? So, what did you learn that can help you (or anyone) fix
    the problem?

    logging into any *nix gui is risky business--even just to see if "It
    works correctly as root."

    then your gnome install is broken--and that fact that it is also
    broken for a new user means (to me) it is _badly_ broken..

    yep! so the trick is knowing where....and, i would have no idea where
    to begin....it is probably something got mashed due the way the
    upgrade from 12.2 to 12.3 proceeded..

    which these three guides (the only ones recommended and supported)
    did you follow step-by-step, exactly:
    1. http://tinyurl.com/35p966c
    2. http://tinyurl.com/93uemsr
    3. http://tinyurl.com/7l4m2td

    or, if you followed one of those exactly as given then you had a
    failed upgrade anyway--which happens....far too often...which is why
    each guide states that failure is possible, and to backup first.

    you can spend days and weeks trying to find what failed or you can
    recover by using your pre-upgrade backup..

    This looks ok.
    Could you please upload your ~/.xsession-errors after a failed login to GNOME to SUSE Paste or similar and post a link?

    Also check that your /home partition is not full (root has its home directory in /root so wouldn't be affected by this).

    Well, the fact that it works as root means that the install is NOT _badly_ broken.
    But it could be some permissions issue.

    of course. but i define "badly broken" as a system in which the
    problem is not relatively _easily_ findable and fixable... ymmv

    so, which easily findable and fixable permissions issue was uncovered
    by logging in as root?

    It is here: SUSE Paste

    And I see at least one lib not firing. Weirdo...

    Hm. That was an old error file.
    I get no new file when I try to log in.

    I also see I have trouble with the kernel ending in -16 as I can't get the nvidia installer to build for it, so no gfx for it.
