How to fix corrupt text on Debian?

I'm having this problem, but the solution there doesn't suggest any Debian packages. Here are the installed font packages, so can anyone pinpoint what's missing here?

Could you tru the following?


Clear your browser cache

Run sudo apt-get install fontconfig to ensure font healthcheck run w/o problems

Run sudo apt-get remove fonts-lyx on the server to remove problematic fonts

Run sudo apt-get install gsfonts gsfonts-other fonts-dejavu fonts-dejavu-core fonts-dejavu-extra libmotif-common to install / update required fonts

Run fc-cache -s on the server to update the fonts cache

Clear the plugins cache (restart required)

Rebuild the content indexes from scratch (restart required)



Are you sure motif is the exact name of the Debian package? apt says Unable to locate package motif.

Sorry you are right, the package name on debian is "libmotif-common"

Clearing the browser cache & installing motif worked. Thanks!

You are welcome :)
