           Summary: Text not rendered when built using Quartz backend on Mac
                    OS X
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.6.4
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Mac OS X (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: quartz backend
        AssignedTo: vladimir at pobox.com
        ReportedBy: freedesktop at flyn.org
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

I have built cairo 1.6.4 using MacPorts. I am using the Quartz (no X11) backend
on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

When I run an application (e.g., gimp, inkscape or gnumeric) all of the text
displayed by the application is replaced by small boxes. As it loads, the
application prints:

(gimp:11700): Pango-WARNING **: shaping failure, expect ugly output.
shape-engine='BasicEngineFc', font='Bitstream Vera Sans 10', text='Plug-In

This has been reproduced by several users and reported to the MacPorts cairo
maintainer, see http://trac.macports.org/ticket/15052.

It has also been discussed briefly on gtk-i18n-list, see
http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-i18n-list/2008-April/msg00004.html. Note
that the suggested fix, "fc-cache -f" does not work.
