Web fonts

  • Hello,

    New to Opera, love it!

    I have installed Opera on a Debian Wheezy system without Gnome/KDE (Just Xorg and Openbox).

    One of the first pages I visited is showing the text garbled (squarespace.com). Am I missing a fonts package that I need to install?

    I have taken a screenshot of the page but unfortunately I do not have the option to post the image here in this forum.

    I have not reported this error through the Opera menu in the application as I am sure if is probably a configuration issue with my machine's fonts.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Yes, Opera 12.16 shows incorrect characters for the webfont on Linux Wheezy (KDE) and even on Windows.
    Opera 12 has problems to render the font correctly.

  • I think the webfont (WOFF sent as data-url) is defect.

  • Thanks for the reply. Is there anything I can change in my configuration to fix the error, or must I just wait for a bugfix?

    I will report the error with the page via Help > Report a site problem...

    Yes, report it, but... i dont think they'll bugfix this. Opera 12 is unfortunately dead, Linux will have Opera 25 in few months.
