May be you’re experiencing this localization bug having no font in old GTK1.x applications such as XMMS, Audacity etc. This is because of the localization settings ie. you may be selected other languages other than en_US. Type locale in a terminal to find out the localization settings. en_IN (English India) is having some bugs and because of this the GTK1.x applications not showing any fonts in their menus. To avoid this problem, you should select English (US) from the login screen and make it as the default language. en_IN and en_US are basically the same, so you may not notice any major difference. Now the XMMS menu fonts will appear. This happens because you’ve selected the country as India (or Other) during installation and the language settings goes to en_IN.
