Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start phoenix 2. 3. Actual Results: get an illegible toolbar Expected Results: get a useable toolbar mozilla/beonex works fine
Is this a default install without a theme? What WindowManager are you using?
INSTALL: default install without themes from the FreeBSD ports collection. WINDOWMANAGERS: blackbox, hackedbox, ratpoison, fluxbox, icewm give the same result Other Browsers: Mozilla 0.9-1.2 and Beonex 0.8 worked/work fine I am rebuilding phoenix without anti-aliasing now and post result by tomorrow.
phoenix doesn't have any freeBSD hackers so this bug is unlikely to see any action unless some freeBSD person steps up to investigate and fix
there are two short term solutions: 1) disabling anti-aliasing (build using option WITHOUT_XFT) 2) removing at least the following fonts (there may be others) from the fontpath in the X configuration file (XF86Config or XF86Config-4) FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/" FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/" FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/" I'll try to contact the maintainer of the phoenix port
Phoenix builds don't enable xft. This is not our bug.
