I can't understand why I can't see type 1 fonts anymore on some apps and on Desktop.

I made some upgrade on my Linux Mint, but I can't find a reason. I'll explain better:

I installed these pachages:

  • pangox-compat
  • libxml2
  • libxml2.i686
  • glibc
  • glibc.i686
  • libstdc++
  • libstdc++.i686
  • libjpeg-turbo
  • libjpeg-turbo.i686
  • beecrypt.i686
  • beecrypt-devel.i686
  • Canon cndrvcups-common_3.40-1_amd64.deb
  • Canon cndrvcups-ufr2-uk_3.10-1_amd64.deb

Morevoer the Canon package had a erroneous install guide, so I added some python packages, so pip list is now (I suspect a python problem) :

urllib3 (1.7.1)
virtkey (0.63.0)
xkit (0.0.0)

For example now some programs display strange and empty chars, like on that image, where the title has a weird font and the text on the white background has a lot of empty space, something that looks like square brackets:

Moreover it seems that GTK applications can't show type 1 fonts anymore:

In the end, I really don't know what happened.

I found on internet the solution, the problem is the pango-graphite package, removing it solved all!!!!
