I don't know why I can't figure this out, but when I had KDE4 (kdm) and now that I have Plasma 5 (sddm), I don't get any text in the greeter. I've cross checked with two of my other computers that do show the text and I can't find any setting regarding text that is obviously different. Sad that my main PC is the one with the problem. This has been going on for a while, but I just didn't reboot enough to care much. It has finally gotten on my nerves enough that I want to fix it.

Does this sound like I need to recompile something, or change some USE flags for some text related package or what? Perhaps it's some file somewhere that I modified inadvertently and never changed back.

Found the problem.

I had some folder permission/ownership problems in "/usr/share/fonts/".

The folders in question were owned by a user account (greg) with permission set to 700. I may have copied some fonts from a thumbdrive. The folders were all caps.
