Default After NV installation polish fonts dissapear

i've really annoying problem with my kde and nv drivers.

Firstly: after installation openSUSE i can't use my desktop - i've gf6600gt on agp8x and X don't want start, only one i can see is artefacts like this: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/102145/Zrzuty/system.JPG

So i know that i need install nv drivers.

Secondly: i've tried install drivers manually and from nv repo (download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1) all works fine, system start with X serwer, i can do everything with 3d acceleration - Cool! I'm fall in love opensuse with kde.

But... och noes! i don't have polish fonts in gtk apps, just look like on this two screenshots:
without nv: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/102145/Zrzuty/without.png
with nv: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/102145/Zrzuty/with.png

All these words/sentences are write correctly, so... Please for help, i really want to have suse with kde which works properly.

What's the version of the nVidia drivers you have installed manually?

For me the problem of polish fonts in OOo spellchecker was solved by installing the Office package manually from OOo website (not SUSE repository).

I've installed this drivers: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...80.44-pkg1.run so it's the latest version. Actually i've installed version from nvidia repo - 180.29, it's better way for me, because i don't want in each kernel update compile again, and again nvidia drivers.

Yes i've heard about that, but i really don't know how properly works polish fonts in pidgin dict? You know pidgin is using gtk dict (i think it's the same dict as OOo use, so it's only dict fault, but after NV update).

I'm trying change all locales to ISO8859-2 and guess what?! I've polish fonts in OOo and pidgin dict, so nvidia drivers must change charset in each dict (i think that GTK uses ispell, or aspell, but i'm not sure which one).

I never use suse repository for nv, because it didn't work for me, i'm using only download.nvidia.com, or manualy installation
