I can't imagine this is specific to virt-manager. Do other graphical apps have similar issues? Maybe a base package somewhere is missing a proper fonts dep.

Reassigning to pango since it's giving us an error message.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2010-07-12 11:40:55 EDT
Sure, if you don't install any fonts, then all graphical apps have the same problem.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2010-07-12 12:19:04 EDT
This isn't really something that can be expressed in a dependency, though, as the app may need different fonts depending on the locale.

If you need fonts for graphical apps, install the 'fonts' group. This is going to be part of the documentation, see bug 607057.
