Unhappy Arial font replaced with arial-black under Fedora 14


Hello.

I've got a font issue on my system: The normal arial is missing from my system and all software substitutes it with arial-black. It's a system wide problem:
Firefox, konqueror and chrome all render Arial texts as Arial-black
OpenOffice and GIMP only display "arial black" in font selection, not arial
Inkscape displays bot arial and "arial black", but they're the same font.

I tried reinstalling liberation-sans-fonts package and even rebooted, but the problem remains. I checked my fontconfig configuration, but nothing seems to be wrong.

I believe the problem first occured after I uninstalled VirtualBox (proprietary edition). But I'm not sure.

If anyone has an idea what causes the problem, please help.

Thanks

Try the following to see if it reinstalls the proper fonts:

Code:
yum reinstall liberation-fonts

Nope, such package doesn't exist in Fedora14
Code:
[root an00bis]$ yum list "*liberation*"
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, presto, refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages
liberation-fonts-common.noarch                                                                                    
liberation-mono-fonts.noarch     
liberation-narrow-fonts.noarch   
liberation-sans-fonts.noarch      
liberation-serif-fonts.noarch
I reinstalled all of those and rebooted, but no luck.

Code:
git clone http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/liberation-fonts.git
Clone in, and try looking around for the fonts you need. I'm currently at work and I don't have access to linux right now.
