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.

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).

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.
