Comment 1 Dan Williams 2005-05-27 14:08:57 UTC
Warren, is the fontconfig package installed?

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2005-05-27 14:12:02 UTC
So, fontconfig must be installed unless RPM plays tricks: requires (gtk2)
gtk2 requires (fontconfig)

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-05-27 19:22:21 UTC
Yes fontconfig is installed.  Maybe not the fonts...

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-10 11:54:55 UTC
I'll add a require on basic fonts.
