So Everything worked fine i installed all these packages got mozilla to work with plugins then i rebooted my machine and BANG!! .... Upon the logon screen I see no fonts whatsoever i type my user name and password cant see the fonts. So i blindly login and now i cant see fonts that were in my menu icons and desktop icons dont have any fonts under them either.
Only fonts i CAN see is inside a terminal i can see what i type and in mozilla.
My question how can i restore my system fonts? Because my system is like crippled now.
OH yeah i tried googling it but no luck. Hopefully someone here can help me out. I tell ya its like working in a dark room with no fonts. This sucks. I also tried restarting xfs no luck in resolving this problem. I also did:
# chkfontpath --list
Current directories in font path:
Maybe the problem is with item '10' theres no path there im not sure. But the problem is still active.
