GAMBIT crashes when Meshing a Face in the GUI. Error 1: Using default visual with OPENGL_DEVICE_DRIVER. Received X Intrinsics Warning . OR Error 2: function call "wait_percent()" in G.so
Problem Description: When trying to mesh a face in GAMBIT on Linux 64-bit you receive the following error or errors:
Error 1: Using default visual with OPENGL_DEVICE_DRIVER.
Received X Intrinsics Warning <Cannot convert string "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-75-75-*-*-*" to type FontStruct>.
Error 2: function call "wait_percent()" in G.so
Resolution: Update the Fonts RPM as the fonts might not be the latest or even installed with a Linux OS install.
If that does not resolve the issue launch GAMBIT and in the GAMBIT window (the one-line text entry below the graphics) enter: wait_test (note the underscore) and hit enter and see if this also crashes GAMBIT.
The "wait_test" is a test utility to make sure Progress Bar works. The Progress Bar uses a different font than GAMBIT
