Fonts and terminal issues after update 5

Postby sackofspuds » Sat Sep 22, 2012 11:34 am

Hi

Upgraded to Update 5 today and should have read the Update pack info but I guess I only got that after updating! What I failed to do was:

Always choose "keep file" (as opposed to "install new version").

Anyhow, the font in Chromium is now awful and when I start a Terminal session it's black on black, ie, invisible.

Is there a quick way of rectifying this? I'm using Gnome Shell.

Thanks very much.

Thanks, zerozero. Monsta's script to create the symlinks did the trick.

For anyone else with the terminal issue, a solution is to go into Edit / Profiles / Default / Colours, deselect Use colours from system theme and select the Built-in scheme Black on white.

Here's the system info you requested:
