#11412 assigned bug

App_server won't return to default fonts without reboot

After I deleted package with optional fonts I encountered error with app_server. I can't access any window or menu, all the text is missing. Apparently it is because app_server can't switch to default system fonts without reboot.

I guess app_server should try to fallback to default fonts if currently used ones were removed.

Looks similar to #7223

To reproduce:

  • pkgman install droid
  • set droid fonts in Appearance
  • pkgman uninstall droid

I'm not sure if that's actually a bug; the fonts are loaded in memory already, like a open document window doesn't vanish when you delete its file on disk.

In any case, I'm not sure it's worth the extra effort.

I've ran into this issue again after updating used font package.
