This problem is most common when someone installs a browser in linux emulation, for example www/opera which is only avalible through linux_compat.
# Fixing the problem
The problem is, that the emulated Linux system's font cache is empty, thus you can't use your fonts installed in NetBSD. Its quite easy to fix actualy.
## Installing Linux fontconfig
Look for which package you will need:
$ pkgfind fontconfig|grep ^emulators
emulators/suse100_fontconfig: Linux compatibility package for fontconfig
emulators/suse91_fontconfig: Linux compatibility package for fontconfig
You will need _emulators/suse100_fontconfig_ on i386 and _suse100_32_fontconfig_ on amd64 architecture. **FIXME**
Install it from packages or from pkgsrc. You can find more on installing in the documention or in the wiki.
## Running fc-cache
The only thing you have to do after installing it is the following:
It will regenerate the font cache in the compat system.
To ensure fonts have been cached in the compat system, you can use the following command :
You may use your fonts antialiased with linux_compat now
## If it doesn't work
Still ugly fonts?
If you use modular xorg, you may also need to link /usr/pkg to /usr/X11R6 :
ln -s /usr/pkg /usr/X11R6
