some time ago I experienced the same problem. In particular math
texts with lots of formulas looked horrible. At the end just some
black and white pattern showed up. I am not sure if Adobe Acrobat
Reader is the culprit but I have the vague impression that the
problems appeared after installing AAReader which I needed for some
Trying to get rid of AAReader removing everything which seemed to be
related to the reader didn't help. Eventually, I used "clean font
caches" (with Onyx or Main Menue I can't remember) and now everything
is fine AAreader again installed.
Hope it helps.
