installed the font hack, everything works fine except the UI.
i installed 4 new fonts. on the Overview page, only 3 were shown, but they were all available on the Details drop down menu. As for the sample text display, 1 font showed only 3 samples and 1 showed only 2.
the Fonts setting pop-up was also affected. during one instance, instead of showing 8 font sizes, one font size was missing from the display.
the Serif, Sans Serif, Monospace, Condensed selections at the bottom of the screen also behaved erratically. the Condensed selection would under some circumstances not shown.
it will be good if these problems can be resolved. anyway, thanks for the good efforts.
