gqview and xscreensaver: no text in widgets

Hi there. I've been playing with ArchLinux for about 3 weeks now, and so far, everything is hunky dory.

Unfortunately, I got a weird problem:

gqview and xscreensaver don't have text in any of their buttons, menu items.. etc.

All the buttons are there and the programs DO work, but it's really difficult as I don't know what I'm clicking on sad

I did "pacman -S" on both of them, and "pacman -Syu". I even used abs to compile a custom gqview but the problem is still there.

If anyone can point me in the right direction on what to do, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply, Green..
5 minutes after my initial post, I realized that I didn't really run the apps from the command line, so I did.
Lo and behold, there was error messages complaining about something called "Pango".
So I just "pacman -S pango", and now everything works fine.

Baa....

(Same problem also with The Gimp: now no worries)

Re: gqview and xscreensaver: no text in widgets

sounds like something to file a bug about. with normal dependency solving you should be able to run any package. in this case the dependency chain is broken somewhere (or pango is broken again)
