[RESOLVED] Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font

Post by DavidA2011 » 2011/10/19 11:18:13

Hi

I have a minimal Centos 6 installation. I am trying to run a simple wxWidgets program on it and get the following error message:

$ ./hworld

(hworld:2171): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'


wxGTK, wxGTK-devel and Pango packages are installed. /usr/share/fonts is empty.

Any suggestions please?

Best regards

David

Fixed by installing dejavu-lgc-sans-fonts package:

[code]
[b]yum install dejavu-lgc-sans-fonts[/b]
[/code]
