Setup LXDE and a VNC and I can connect through ok but all the fonts are squares - anyone know how to change this? maybe a config file somewhere for the system font or something?
failing that anyone that knows this interface on where to click to change the fonts?
attached a pic to show it.
many thanks for your message. That looks strange indeed. May I ask what VNC Viewer you are using? What language you have set on your system?
tiger vnc - just a default install of dietpi.
ive tried a few different GUi now and they also the same - is there something im missing in the dietpi files to confirm im english language?
usually there is just one point where you need to set your language dietpi-config > Language/Regional Options
What device you are running?
language is set to US.
Just using a normal PC as a pi.
Its strange - most GUI option desktops seem to use a square font but terminal outside GUI is totally fine.
Going to install them all and test.
Are you able to connect a screen if it is a normal PC? Maybe you can start the desktop without using VNC. Just to see how it is behaving.
thanks for your help but I ended up doing it the ultimate way and it worked!
backup up all my pi settings, wiped it all then reinstalled and restored settings and now its working
so must have been a system thing somewhere that got wiped out with the backup and restore onto a fresh isntall.
ok good it’s working now. probably some corrupted font files.
