Strange coloured blocks


Hello,

I've been having problems with blocks appearing instead of certain gtk
elements. After playing with gtk-demo, I've narrowed the problems down
to hyperlinks and single/double underlining. The underlining problem
only seems to affect some applications' spell checkers. Xchat has the
problem, but openoffice, evolution and chromium don't.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with openbox rather than gnome - but the problem
is present in both environments.

Here's some screenshots of the problems;http://imgbin.org/index.php?page=image&id=3021http://imgbin.org/index.php?page=image&id=3022I've asked around in #gtk+ and the ubuntu channel and forums to no
avail. Do any of you have any ideas of what the problem is, or how I can
narrow it down further?

An unrelated note, but this is my first ever mailing list post! I hope
I'm doing it right, but if I'm not or I've broken some kind of
etiquette, please shout at me (:


Kindest Regards,

Phil Markham

Hehe, you seem to have hit the nail right on the head, thank you! I'm
slightly annoyed it was something so simple!

I changed the application font from Ubuntu-R to something else and the
problem went right away. It's a shame because I liked that font, and
rebuilding the font cache or messing about with anti-aliasing settings
doesn't seem to make a difference.

Thanks again,

Phil Markham

That sounds like something the Ubuntu developers would be keen to hear
about if you filed a bug on Launchpad.

Yes, that is what I initially thought - but rather than settling on
another font, I reinstalled the Ubuntu font from the latest packages and
haven't had a problem since. I must have either had an old version or
something may have just become corrupt locally. If the problem crops up
again, I'll be sure to report it.

Kindest Regards,

Phil Markham
