Missing fonts in Maya on Fedora, and other Linux distros
A problem with missing font files in Fedora, prevents some text and labels from displaying
properly in the program windows. For example, texture names may
not appear as expected below the texture icons in the Hypershade window.
Also some other packages needs to be installed on some distributions, not on Ubuntu, as I know of, but I’ll writ it down anyway.
Download and install the following rpm or .deb files (names vary slightly so make a search for something similar:
5. libXp (for both .i386 .x86_64)
6. libXp-devel (for both .i386 .x86_64
7. mesa-libGLw mesa-libGLw-devel )
8. gamin-devel (for libfam.so)
