I have a weird problem: installed new Debian 7.1 x64 on a server, gnome and kde desktops and virt-manager.

I connect to the machine via NX Server 3.5 installed on it (remote desktop solution).

My KDE desktop works great except for gnome-related apps which seem to have fonts missing, simply not displayed:

missing fonts

I have changed fonts in KDE to typical fonts (directly at console in Gnome, too), refreshed font cache, etc., all to no avail.

Does anybody have any idea why this is happening?
