[Mageia-discuss] Strange font color

Hi list,

I just installed Mageia 1 Beta2, and found that this problem still occurred.

So I came here to ask if you could give me any hint.

This problem only happened on my laptop, which uses intel GM965 on-board
display chip.
It has been a problem since Mandriva 2010.1 and 2010.2.  I'm not sure if it
had the same problem on Mandriva 2010.0.

Please see this screenshot:


As you can see, in the KDE menu only the first item has words on it.  The
other items are icons only.

Actually, only Chinese fonts would become white.  Why do I think it become
white words on white background?
Please see:


In screenshot 3 you can see the words on my task bar.  The Chinese words are
white, while English words are black.

It also happened in the KDE menu:


I tried to create a clean user environment by logging in with an empty home
folder.  However this problem was still the same.

When I installed kubuntu or Linux Mint 10, this problem didn't happen.  Only
Mandriva and Mageia happened.

Have you ever seen similar problems before?  Changing the color settings in
KDE does not help to solve this problem.

Any suggestion or hint is appreciated.
