Okay, I'm a relatively new n00b to Linux, but I'm getting by. I had a bit of trouble installing GTK2 because of pango and such but I eventually got everything working.

I tell you this because I think it may have something to do with the fact that in some programs "OpenOffice", "Software Install/Uninstall", etc I have no text. It's all gone, just blank buttons and little underscore characters.

Does anyone know what I did to cause this, or even better, what I can do to fix it? Thanks in advance.

It really sounds like you have lib file problems. MAybe you have changed some links or replaced some lib files
