After the last update, my mythtv setup menus in the frontend and backend changed to greek, I think it is just a font issue because it looks like letter substitution rather than language. Either way english is the language that is set everywhere I can find, and I can't find any greek font set anywhere. Anybody else had a similiar issue? Any idea how to fix it?

Mythbuntu 12.04, Mythtv 0.26

Have you checked the paths in usr/share/mythtv/fonts? Most are symlinks to usr/share/fonts and something in the upgrade may have changed or broken the link or pointed it to the wrong font. – douggro Nov 29 '13 at 17:32

Thanks douggro, I looked for a broken/wrong link in the font dir but didn't find one, was hoping someone knew which font the setup menus used. I gave up checking evry font file and just reinstalled the msttf fonts and that seems to have solved it.
