Description Gordan Bobic 2010-05-02 11:50:46 UTC
Description of problem:

gnome-terminal doesn't work unless libgnome is installed. It fails with:
ERROR:terminal-app.c:1445:terminal_app_init: assertion failed:
(app->system_font_desc != NULL)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a minimal RHEL6b install
2. yum install xterm and gnome-terminal
3. startx
4. xterm starts, gnome-terminal does not. Running gnome-terminal in xterm returns the above error.
Actual results:
ERROR:terminal-app.c:1445:terminal_app_init: assertion failed:
(app->system_font_desc != NULL)

Expected results:
gnome-terminal should start

Additional info:
"yum install libgnome" fixes the problem.
