I strongly need your help.
The font anti-aliasing under KDE 2.2.1 (XFree86 v4.x, SuSE 7.3 pro/i386)
doesn't work not for long on my machine. :-(((
The story so far: I've attempted to install and setup additional truetype
fonts (into the directory /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype) using the
kfontinst tool. Of course, I've verified the correct path settings et al. in
After installation has been finished, I tried to enable Anti-Aliasing in the
kcontrol tool (Appearance/Fonts). After I've logged off, restarted the X
server (in kdm) and logged on again, I still saw the KDE splash screen and
the mini console window in the left lower corner - and that's it. The KDE
desktop did never build up. My only chance was to return to kdm by pressing
After checking my local KDE settings from a console login, I succeeded to
disable Anti-Aliasing by setting the value "AntiAliasing= false" in the file
~/.kde2/share/config/kdeglobals . So, at least I was able to logon
at/startup KDE again, but without AntiAliasing.
Before I had tried to install additional truetype fonts, enabling and
disabling AntiAliasing always has succeeded.
Who can tell me, what there was going wrong and how can I fix it up without
completely reinstalling my system?
What can I do to become able to enable Anti-Aliasing again?
Thanks in advance,
