Java developer and architect, my favorite task is performance troubleshooting. I also consider myself as a Linux system administrator.

comment How to determine what font an X application needs
So in your case, I guess xlsfonts and fc-list would have failed with a relevant error message, right ? If so, I guess you may accept my answer as a proper way to diagnose the issue you reported

You should compare your systems font list with fc-list and maybe rebuild cache with fc-cache -fv

comment How to determine what font an X application needs
If other applications work properly I guess your fonts are OK. What is xlsfonts output ? Is it possible to know what application is in trouble on your system ?

So you may install all font packages from your working system. Or you may use "ltrace" to get handle on libX11 calls and probably find the font name passed to "X_OpenFont" method...

comment How to determine what font an X application needs
Really relevant question ! In a standard situation a tool should declare its font dependencies properly in its GNU/Linux distribution specific package description. To fix such a trouble, most users seem to apply a guess-and-try font package installation loop until the tool no longer complains...

comment How to use an old Kingston DataTraveler Vault Privacy USB flash drive on Linux?
Kingston support has proposed me to replace my key by a more recent version with Linux code included... but my employer declined that offer. So I still run the .Net code from a windows virtual machine to unlock the device, and after deconnection from VM (the device remains physically connected and powered), I am able to mount the filesystem on Linux.
