I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit. I copied the qt-everywhere 5.1 sources into ~/qt510_sources and used the following steps.
sudo apt-get install build-essential Python Perl
sudo apt-get install "^libxcb.*" libx11-xcb-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libxrender-dev
mv qtwidget qtwidget_
mv qtwebkit-examples-and-demos qtwebkit-examples-and-demos_
./configure -static - release -opensource -nomake examples -nomake -no-gtkstyle -no make demos
make -j 4
sudo make install
When I execute qtdesigner and create a new ui I find only very few fonts (mabye twelve) are available and no sans-serif fonts at all. Ubuntu itself is displaying all fonts that I have tried correctly. The same steps (IIRC) worked on a 64 bit install.
Before I blow it all away and start again, I wondered if anyone can offer any sage advice as to what the root cause might me?
