I'm running a tightvnc server on Ubuntu 11.04 with a Gnome fallback session. Things seem to work fine except that when I try launching an application that needs
xfonts-100dpi. All application menus are shown as little boxes instead of characters. It's as if the fonts are missing. The strange thing is,
xfonts-100dpi is already installed and the same application runs fine if I log in to the box directly. Can you please help?
unset SESSION_MANAGER /usr/bin/gnome-session-fallback
