[Scribus] User Interface Fonts
Sat Apr 3 17:42:54 CEST 2004
I had this same problem with 1.1.5. I apologize to the group for not posting the
solution. Time got away from me. I do appreciate Craig & Martin's generous help.
Here are the suggestions I got:

What I did on my machine (Mac OX 10.2.8, Apple's X11 beta3):
o I already had applesystemfonts and x-ghostscript-fonts installed. I installed msttcorefonts.
o I looked around for a Hershey font but couldn't find one. But then, I wasn't sure I'd know
it if I found it.
o The first time I opened qtconfig, it had the same "boxes" problem. So, I got rid of ~/.qt (which
was owned by me) and ran it again. This time I got normal text. The default font was
Helvetica which perhaps is not on my system. When I changed the default to a Luxi font,
the problems went away both in qtconfig and Scribus.
I hope that helps.
