My System was running absolutely fine. But after firefox continuous crash, I rebooted it to find the following strange problem.
Strange problem :
During booting, the text below the graphical progress bar is not coming.
After booting no login prompt. Only one dialog box (without any text in/over it) containing a button having a tick button. Pressing which no effect. Pressed Cntl+Alt+F2, to get text prompt successsfully. Login and startx. After startx, no text in X only icons appear. No text in the menu after clicking the red-hat button. Mouse right click- no text. Only menu with arrows shown. Tried to opened firefox using gnome-terminal, but it crashed giving some pango warning.
I WAS able to get to the desktop, however any icons or any menu items had no fonts to them. In other words, you could see the icons but there was no description as to what they were. This also included the menu that you access on the taskbar, as well. Even the tool-tip on the taskbar is empty.
why the library "/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so" is saying it as undefined symbol ?
This symbol is undefined in libpango-1.0.so or something like.
I haven't found this symbol in /usr/lib/*pango* on my system, so it seems to be obsolete, so your problem is too old libgtk-x11-2.0.so version. Maybe try installing some older version of pango. Or ask on your distro-specific forum.
