    Font issues

    After the new fontconfig update my fluxbox fonts got messed up - so I am assuming the update caused the problem. Was I supposed to update a config file after the update? What else could have happend? Now my interface looks dumb with the changed fonts... heh.

    Do you have some nice fonts installed? Try:
    pacman -S ttf-ms-fonts ttf-dejavu
    This could help the solution but if not, they are nice fonts to have .

    Try running fc-cache (as root) as well.
