Properly setting font permissions?
Made a stupid error trying to fix support for fonts.. basically, all my fonts work correctly as root, but weren't working for my main user. I figured it was a permissions error, so I chmod'ed the files in the TTF folder to 444. This got my TTF fonts working. I then went to see if my international fonts (russian, japanese, etc.) would work, but got nothing but number-boxes. Flush with my success from the TTF folder, I simply did
chmod 444 fonts -R
on the main font folder, which means that now, of course, NONE of my fonts work under the user account. Everything works just fine under root, but I'm trying to break the habit of being root all the time (bad habit I picked up fresh from windows).
So my question is - what exactly did I f*ck up, and how do I get my fonts working in my main user account?
Thanks in advance
