[Bug 1480060] Re: Fonts in GUI garbled, missing characters on Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd Gen


No, it was closed for a reason. You need to install latest updates or
migrate to a supported stack (lts-utopic stack from 14.10 is no longer
supported, apart from the kernel)

  video-intel/+bug/1432194) but it was unproperly marked as resolved and
  closed, team unsubscribed, Hence I am filing a new one.
