I ran into a little problem today...
Yesterday I got online from the laptop and updated and installed a few packages from the repos.
Today, when I opened a pdf I was reading the day before, before the packages were installed, I saw no writing...just some pictures (arrows/bullets etc.)
xpdf was opened from the command line so I looked at the terminal and these
lines kept appearing. I did an su to root and ran xpdf from the command line as root, and this time, the pdf was displayed correctly. (same thing in the root account, it works fine)
Another thing: pcmanfm file associations were gone
I reinstalled pcmanfm and I got them back, but the pdf problem still remained.
In the attachment are the /var/log/packages files modified yesterday and today.
I think maybe something screwed with my privileges or fonts?
