I installed texlive 2010 and ran fc-cache -fvs to update font cache. After that some fonts are not displaying properly in google chrome. In firefox it is working fine. What could be the problem?

Could you attach a screenshot? For awhile I was running into a font issue where Chrome was butchering fonts with a text-shadow set, but that could be a completely different issue. – Michael Martin-Smucker Jun 16 '11 at 18:27
I have attached the image now – bonzi Jun 16 '11 at 18:53
Ouch, that's much worse than what I was thinking of... – Michael Martin-Smucker Jun 16 '11 at 18:54
Did you try purging and then re-installing Chrome – Manish Sinha Aug 10 '11 at 8:41
Are you still experiencing the issue? – James Sep 10 '11 at 12:49

You might try adding the Chromium Nightly ppa:chromium-daily/ppa and see if you can replicate the issue. Please let me know if this helps. Thanks.
