Debian Wheezy, KDE 4.8 keeps on crashing

Debian Wheezy, KDE 4.8 keeps on crashing

On upgrading Debian from Squeeze to Wheezy, KDE was restarting every now and then.

After I've just upgraded to Debian Wheezy, KDE 4.8 was installed. Every time I maximized a window, the KDE system crashed. Very annoying!

After searching multiple hours, I couldn't find any useful information, even with the logs I got in the Xorg.0.log or kdm.log, only this message which didn't help:
kdm: X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

Then I found the solution on Ubuntu Forums, in a post by eklikeroomys :

I have managed to fix the problem by commenting out the following lines in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Section "Files"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

Removed the lines from xorg.conf, and no more crashes!
