Kubuntu 13.04
I installed steam on kubuntu 13.04 and when I lunch steam there are no fronts.
Anyone have any idea what I need to do ?

Have you installed the restricted extras? Steam uses some fonts not natively included. (assuming you meant fonts)

Yes fonts :) and sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras should be enough right ?
Saner than a coconut Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:08am 
seeing as you're running kubuntu i'd run sudo apt-get kubuntu-restricted-extras, but yes, it should normally suffice.
Ásgarður Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:08am 
but there is still no fonts

It comes with Kubuntu-extras automatically. I Downloaded mine 13.04 yesterday and installed Steam with no problems. I followed this setup:

Install system
Update system
Install Graphics Driver
Install 32bit libs (sudo apt-get install ia32-libs)
Then, install Steam.

did the terminal prompt you to install ttf-mscorefonts? If so, I don't know why the font won't appear, i'm sorry.
Ásgarður Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:09am 
removed ubuntu and changed to kubuntu, but there is still bug with fonts

I installed nvidia 313 drivers could the problem be there ?

No, and yes. Did some error message appeared?

What system are you running, 32 or 64bit?
What hardware?

could you try just uninstalling the ttf-mscorefonts package, might have done something wrong when installing through ubuntu-restricted-extras, and then installing just that. Please also confirm that in the terminal it prompted you to accept the EULA or not.
Ásgarður Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:30am 
I reinstalled and yes accepted eula but still no fonts but at the beginning there where none but after I installed xfonts-100dpi I now see little boxes.
Saner than a coconut Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:48am 
Uhm... Grasping at straws here, but slight possibility.

In your output from a few posts back it states : Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d", line 1: failed reading config file.

could you look in /etc/fonts/ whether you have the sub-folder "conf.d", should be there, but might not due to an error of some sorts(?)
Ásgarður Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:55am 
/etc/fonts/conf.
conf.avail/ conf.d/
Ásgarður Apr 29, 2013 @ 12:01pm 
reinstall system :)
