Google Earth 6 - Text appears as... just boxes

Post by DarkRubySage »

This is in Newbie Questions, because I'm not actually sure where else to put it (maybe I'm just tired :D)

Yeah, all text in Google Earth 6 renders as boxes - kinda like asian languages when you don't have a font for it.
I dunno what toolkit it uses, but it sure doesn't look like GTK, it doesn't even blend in. Dependencies for GEarth were "alien, rpm, etc" which is wierd.

Anyone know what this is? I'd sort it out myself if I knew.
Oh by the way - I still use Mint, I just really dig the work the Elementary Team has been doing :D

Try it again after Installing this from the Package Manager : ttf-mscorefonts-installer
