Hi Guys,
> I am getting a strange font problem (see 
> http://lh6.ggpht.com/_NirUcVREM8k/SwPNpSUJ2AI/AAAAAAAAAgo/3eZiO8j2pEg/s640/font-issue.png) 
> for a user logging in over VNC Server, I am also logged in over VNC 
> however I am no experiencing any problems... This was the case on 
> CentOS 5.3 and on 5.4 (after upgrade).
> I have tried removing the .vnc dir in the users home dir and re 
> running vncserver so that it recreates it, however the problem 
> persists...
> I found this in the VNC logs:
> (nautilus:14718): Pango-WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically
> loaded modules were found. Pango will not work correctly.
> This probably means there was an error in the creation of:
> '/etc/pango/pango.modules'
> You should create this file by running pango-querymodules.
> Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
> (nautilus:14718): Pango-WARNING **: pango_shape called with bad font, 
> expect ugly output
> (nautilus:14718): Pango-WARNING **: pango_font_get_glyph_extents 
> called with bad font, expect ugly output
> (nautilus:14718): Pango-WARNING **: _pango_cairo_font_install called 
> with bad font, expect ugly output
> Introspect error: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 0
> could not attach to desktop process
> So naturally I attempted what it suggested, again the problem still 
> persists.
> Has anyone seen this before, or have any suggestions?
> Thanks in advance!
