Somehow, my wife uninstalled the "fixed" font from her Mandriva 2006 system, and now it will not start X (KDE). I believe she did this through the Mandriva Control Center font manager, but she's not sure what she did.
Does anyone know how I can get the core fonts reinstalled or reconfigured so that her machine will come back up?
So far, we've tried uninstalling xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts and xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts then reinstalling them, through urpme and urpmi respectively. However, this didn't seem to change anything.
i'd think that this is more likely to be down to the X font server not running for some reason, is the xfs service running when you try to start X?
I just wanted to thank you for your post. I was having a problem with an install and had to do a minimal install because every time that I would install what I wanted, the computer would lock up. Anyway, after installing X by hand and having the error about the fonts, I was finally able to get into X on the machine thanks to your post and wanted to let you know that it is much appreciated.
Distribution: PCLinuxOS 2016 - 64bit on four machines, including a laptop.
Is there any way you could be more specific as to the steps to take to resolve this issue? I have the same problem with "Default font fixed" and have looked all over the place to find someone who can give a simple, step by step proceedure to remedy this problem? Anybody up to it?
well i've already made two suggestions about what could be causing it, and remember, this is not your thread, it's purpleguitars. this thread is to help him, not you, meaning i'd not be suprised if your two root causes had nothign to do with each other at all. you'd do better to post your won thread after exhausting all existing aveneues, e.g. searching lq and google etc...
