Bug Description

On an up to date Jaunty I am currently not able to use any qt4 application at all as the display of fonts is broken in a way that makes them unreadable. Attached you'll find a screenshot showing qt4-config on the left and Skype on the right side showing the same error.

The following might be of interest for you:

I am *not* using compiz / visual effects.

My graphics adapter is:

I am using the recommended nvidia accelerated driver version 180.

Same as bug 334657. I did a apt-get dist-upgrade and still broken for me in janunty kubuntu. No idea what to do.

rm -rf ~/.kde/*
Got rid of my custom settings but KDE fonts now OK (or at least they are readable).

Thankgs, gds, for your comments. As removing the contents of ~/.kde/ did not change the situation for me (and actually the directory only contained two files with real settings) our bugs might be different, therefore I'd suggest to not yet marking them as duplicates.

Checked #334657 - they are just too similar, so marking as duplicate and confirming #334657.
