Hey guys, I have had this problem on many system and can't seem to figure out why. In the settings menu and general UI, I get these black squares rather than font. It can be most seen for example in Writer --> Tools --> Options --> Fonts --> Then click on the drop down menu and then the text pertaining to the font selection will become black illegible blocks. I have tried reinstalling the basic Ubuntu fonts and as well as ttf-deja-vu but nothing works and I'm stumped. Thank you.

Previously affected Operating Systems (64 Bit):

  1. Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Cinnamon
  2. Arch Linux (April 2016), KDE Plasma 5 DE
  3. Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 <-- Current System

Here is the output of my locale as I suspect it might be because of that. LANG=en_CA.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_CA:en LC_CTYPE="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_CA.UTF-8" LC_ALL=

Your version of LibO? Always the same hardware? OpenGL setting?
