KDEGames all with corrupted window fonts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 6, 2009
Hi, I have just installed the kdegames pack (under Ubuntu 9.04) as a couple of them looked like they would be good for the kids. Trouble is every one of them has severely corrupted fonts in any window that displays. It seems to only be in these KDE Games. Can anyone help fix this?

Does edubuntu have any material for toddlers?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 26, 2010
I've never messed with it at all. My brother and his wife have a 2 year old and they wanted to get a computer both for their use and for some educational programs for their kid. They don't really have a budget at all but I happen to have an old computer sitting around that I'm going to give to them.
I've heard about the Edubuntu project, but all the stuff I can find says it's intended for ages 6 and up, which is a bit too advanced for a toddler. Does it have anything really basic that might be worthwhile for a 2 year old?
xubuntu, ubuntu or edubuntu for 3 yr old?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 26, 2009
I'm considering xubuntu for installation on my a 3yr old child's computer. The computer in question is an old Dell (1st gen P4 I believe) with 512mb of RAM that was just replaced for the parents.
I was asked to set it up for surfing the web and playing games (the simple flash kind). A few questions come to mind:
1) Assuming the presence of drivers for the video card and the like, would 512mb of RAM be enough to run Firefox w/ flash on ubuntu or xubuntu?
2) Would it be exaggerated to expect to run WINE on such hardware? Reason being that some of the games the parents already purchased are made for windows. I would bin them personally but apparently it's important to them that the child can play these.
3) Samba. I'm assuming all flavours of ubuntu run it but then again I may be assuming too much. Would xubuntu handle this?
P.S Alternately, would a system running a Intel Celeron 430 Conroe-L (1.8 ghz) be enough for ubuntu or would I have to go lighter (xubuntu or lighter)

Problem in Wine with Russian Fonts or Codepages
location: linux.com - date: May 31, 2010
While trying to run a program in Wine , I encountered a problem with russian alphabet. There are 2 scenarios:
[B]1.[/B] when I start the program in such a way:
wine start run.bat
it displays the charcters in that way
as you see the program is using pseudo-graphics...
[B]2.[/B]when I start the program in such a way:
LANG=ru_RU.CP1251 wine start run.bat
[as far as I understand using the RU locale]
This is what I got:
As you can see, now it's the Cyrillic alphabet, but also someproblem persists...
in both cases in the Terminal is displayed the following error:
:WineEngCreateFontInstance Untranslated charset 255
May that could help in solving the problem...
What I have already done:
1. Copied the Windows fonts in the Wine's Fonts folder[Windows/Fonts]
2. Generated the locales for RU
3. Copied the fonts in /usr/share/fonts
And as you see - No Results!
Please help me solving it!!!:(

A simple way to delete fonts in Ubuntu 10.4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 3, 2010
There seem to be numerous fonts that came packaged with Ubuntu. Many of which I will never use and simply "litter" my system. Is there a simple way to delete these fonts which I don't need?
I have been able to install a few TTFs without any problems. But, purely in the interest of good housekeeping, I would like to delete the fonts which I know I will never use.
