Font does not show up

Postby kmdude344 » Thu May 15, 2014 22:57

When I try to install sabayon KDE or Gnome on my virtualbox, it doesn't have any particular fonts, only rectangular boxes. Anyone got an idea about what's happening?

Hi. I submitted a bug report for this issue. Hopefully it will be looked into.

As a workaround -

1. Boot up the LiveCD to desktop (using 'default' option).
2. Open Terminal
3. Type su
4. Type equo update
5. After update type equo install x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf x11-libs/gtk+:2 x11-libs/gtk+:3 x11-libs/pango
6. Eventually :roll: it will finish installing.
7. Exit out of Terminal.
8. Double click the Install to Hard Drive Icon on the desktop
9. You 'should' have normal Installer fonts.

Hopefully your good to go 8)

Regards

{edit} - You will need to repeat steps 2 - 7 after you reboot to 'fix' the font problem.

Hi Sorry to hear it's not totally fixed. The information i got off the web was for Sabayon Versions 10 and 11. I guess this problem has been going for some time now :cry:

Hi. Just an update

The problem has been fixed in the latest 'Daily' release. I got the x86 KDE version from http://ftp.belnet.be/sabayonlinux/iso/daily/ and it installed without any problems.

Hope this helps

By the way, an alternative is to use the text installer (i.e. at the LiveDVD menu I scrolled down to the "Console mode" option on the menu and hit Enter, then, at the prompt, entered the command "installer").
