Hi

you seem to be using RRDtool 1.2.x; have you defined a font in Settings -> Paths -> RRDTool Default Font Path ?

cgilib-0.5
freetype-2.1.9
include
libart_lgpl-2.3.17
libpng-1.2.5
rrdtool
zlib-1.2.1

those are the folders inside rrdtool folder. i've looked everywhere on that folder and can't see any truetype font or i'm looking for the wrong file?

You're suppose to use the windows fonts.

Not a folder, a specific font file (which typically resides in your windows directory).

This helped me fix my same issue, but I kept trying to use an environment variable, and had to switch to an absolute path.

ie, %windir%\fonts\cour.ttf did not work,
c:\windows\fonts\cour.ttf did work.

Hmm... what if the problem is that only *sometimes* I get missing text. For example, some times a page loads the network graph will be missing all text, but then if I click the graph to load the d/w/m/y set then they will all show text, or maybe all but the monthly graph will show text.

I do have the default font path setup, and I've tried switching it between arial, courier, and tahoma with seemingly no difference.
