Fonts in xfce not display properly
 
After upgrade-all to the slackware-current on 20 May, fonts in xfce displaying in "squares".

edit: not only that, even Terminal while in KDE also getting the same problem.

Did you run slackpkg install-new before slackpkg upgrade-all ?

gabytf 05-21-2013 07:06 AM

No, i didn't.
So i run slackpkg install-new after upgrade-all, but the problem still there.
What should i do now?

reinstall 'librsvg'

tuxbg 05-21-2013 07:08 AM

You should run
Code:

slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system


gmgf 05-21-2013 07:16 AM

reinstall 'pango' and install 'harfbuzz' packages.

bathory 05-21-2013 07:26 AM

Code:

/usr/bin/pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/i486-slackware-linux/pango.modules

You'd have to be careful with this though.

If I run this sequence on my system 'install-new' wants to install a load of KDE and XFCE packages (I don't have KDE or XFCE installed) and 'clean-system' wants to remove all the packages I installed myself.

Just don't go mad and keep hitting 'OK', have a look first, you can be selective. (I could probably adjust the slackpkg conf to ignore specified packages if I ever get round to looking in to it).

Thank you rkfb.
i got alien's stuff installed, so i wouldn't go for "clean-system".

By the way, what other options you used other then KDE and XFCE? Just for my own interest :)

You didn't have to re-install pango (if you had the upgraded version of pango that was in -current). Just needed to install harfbuzz (the new pango dependency) and re-run what bathory posted (normally it's done via rc.M).

gmgf 05-22-2013 02:05 AM

pango reinstall is needed when you dont have updated the new rc.M.

I'm using TWM, which comes with the stock install, as my main window manager. I also added i3 afterwards in case I fancy switching to something a little more up to date at some stage.
