Bad font in GUI & Konkerer-OK in Moz & others
 
Debian:
Font in desktop login and GUI screens, Konqueror menus, Google menus & gg prompts appear as squares. Mozilla, gg search results, open office, command line, vi are OK.
Knoppix:
Everything is beautiful. Debian installed from Knoppix 3.3.
Machine is P75 desktop, 8G hd, 192M 72 pin ram, Diamond Stealth Mach64 (1024k mem), 2 button PS2 mouse, kybd=105 per knoppix (104 per Debian), no other OS installed.
Have done apt-get.
Have tried several servers: mach64, s3, s3v with same results. Knoppix is using ati but Debian isn't offering that option.
Been struggling for 3 weeks. Wife is begining to throw darts at the moron in the corner.

I don't know if this helps but in KDE's control center you can change the fonts for desktop items. I assume you use KDE since you mentioned konqueror.

You might also check if you got the font you want to use installed. I suppose that it could be a video driver problem also. Got the correct vid driver for your adapter?

Thanks for the help! After keeping notes on icons and menus I guessed the correct route to the control center even though the language was german. I'm writing this in Konqueror. All is well. Thanks again teckk :)
