fonts in Opera


I was running Opera with no problems, and all of a sudden all of the fonts look like #$%^&@ on most (but not all of the pages). I've tried messing with the options in fonts and styles and also changing between user / author modes, but nothing works. It's very strange since it just randomly started doing this.

Oh, it's Opera 7.11and I'm running it on Mandrake 9.1

I had the same problem, but a reinstall fixed it.

I'm not sure...but since I've installed 7.11 with the dynamic qt link (ie: the smaller rpm) I haven't had this problem...only when I had the package that was linked statically.

hmm....

That's interesting, because I tried a reinstall and it didn't help. Also, I've been using the dynamic qt link version the whole time....

Try changing your KDE fonts to something nice, since Opera uses QT.

I had the same problem with opera but after a clean install of mandrake it ran fine. Then I installed the lastet nvidia drivers now I have the same problem again leading me to think the drivers are the problem.
