    Fonts broken after Firefox download


    Don't know what happened but can't use my old browser, Opera, nor my lmail program, which looks like Thunderbird.

    When i run lmail from the terminal i get...

    nsKDERegistry::Startup

    (lmail-bin:9450): Pango-WARNING **: Cannot open font file for font Bitstream Vera Sans 10

    (lmail-bin:9450): Pango-WARNING **: Cannot open fallback font, nothing to do

    Sometimes even Firefox has a hard time opening.

    Opera runs fine as sudo. ???? but when i run it as regular user, i get something like the above font messages, which is... couldn't open fontconfigs chosen font with Xft!!!

    Have a great evening!

    This error started after installing Firefox? How did you install Firefox (CNR, apt-get, .deb)?

    Also, are you sure you have those fonts installed? Try installing one of the free font packages through CNR.

    Thanks ImNeat! Will see what i can download, although i don't have the foggiest idea about what would be good...

    My Krusader search reveals that i seem to have all kinds of Bitstream Vera fonts so ???

    Have downloaded x-fonts scalable. i guess they're free, i didn't see any price tag on them and wasn't taken to some sort of Check Out...

    Click Thunder Mail Client icon on Desktop -- no go. Nada.

    Sigh. Have a great evening!

    Thought i'd include this printout of locate command... Maybe it might help.
