truetype fonts fail to display in any user but root...
Hello. I'm pretty new to Linux (last time I tried it I used an old redhat 6.1 cd - i think), but a few days ago I got myself Slackware 9. Since, I have installed the NVIDIA display drivers for my GF3, downloaded the kernel source for 2.4.21, patched it to 2.4.22, added the ntfs patch, recompiled and upgraded my kernel.
Then I decided I wanted some decent fonts in X. So, following some instructions somewhere, I downloaded myself the freetype 2.1.5rc1 sources, and enabled the bytecode interpreter. Then I compiled and installed it to both /usr and /usr/X11R6 . I then used the KDE font installer to add truetype fonts from my winxp partition. Having rebooted a bit, and set the screensize parameter, they seemed to work nicely. However, I then tried them from another user I created (all that above stuff was with root), and found that all the new TTFs just showed up as the 'no character' blocks.
I have tried uninstalling freetype, reinstalling it, reinstalling the fonts and a bunch of other crap, but nothing has worked. Oh, and the nightly build of firebird I put in /usr/share only seems to work from admin too. And there are some "drawing errors" present in X's output after I quit it when I am not root. I didn't see any graphical problems (apart from the missing fonts)..
