    KDE 2.2 profile kills fonts?
    by Anonymous on Wednesday, August 29 @ 06:38:13 BST

    I just installed KDE 2.2 final from unstable onto a combo SID/woody box, and it runs like a dream with everything, except that after you go through the Desktop Configuration Wizard and it creates a .kde directory in your home dir, if you then restart the X server it loses all its fonts. It does not recognize or communicate with the XFS, as near as I can tell. However, deleting this .kde directory will make them come back, but it’s not exactly a good workaround, considering you have to reconfigure all your menus and mail and the like on every login!

    Searching the internet has yeilded little help on this issue, is this native to my machine, or has anyone else experienced this as well?!

Are you running kdm? gdm? xdm? What is your fonts setup, and is XFS just unstable and crashing? I really doubt it could be KDE. Also, the sid/woody combination is an extremely bad idea; run one or the other.
