> First, we need to know what platform and what video system you have. I suspect that you do not have all the needed fonts installed. IMHO, I would go back and install all the fonts available in your LOCALE (eg. language). You also might want to reinstall x.org at tthe same time. While I don't think it is a driver issue you might check your driver and display settings (system/administration/display).
