Yes, Trinity. That screenshot was actually taken on Q4OS, but Trinity is its 
default DE, and the VLC fonts problem looks the same there as in 42.1, plus 
Q4OS has other fonts problems from forced 96 DPI and I don't know what else.

How long might that take? I've already had this machine 6 days. Its owner is 
really missing it. I was hoping to get it back to him completely fixed no 
later than tomorrow. Would it be possible to workaround by using VLC from the 
13.2 Packman repo?
