Hi, since some time my X11 (graphical as in TBrowser and the splash screen) are not so readable. I think it was related to the upgrade 10.04->12.04 of Kubuntu and now no TTF or in general scalable fonts are used. This is persistent between different ROOT versions, currently at 5.34/02. Any idea on what could be the problem? Below my root-config --features and my $HOME/.rootrc related entries. Commenting out the Gui.* entries does not seem to have effect. Thanks!
Well, apparently someone had the same kind of issue:
[url]Font problem in TBrowser. Ubuntu 12.04
But I really don’t know how to debug this kind of problem… If it doesn’t work for you, I’ll try to set-up a virtual machine to try to reproduce the problem. Just let me know.
(although most were already installed except t1XXX-nonfree fonts and xfs/xfstt tha I suspect do the trick )
and a reboot fixed the issue, even with my original .rootrc (all Gui* and TTF* entries commented out ie defaulted)
Could we then safely assume that the reason is that xfs/xft is not used by default in Kubuntu in favor of xft2 or something equivalent? Dario should know
