    Angry Gnome font missing

    Hi guys.. I don't know what happened, but looks like gnome configuration has changed, and my system font is not found.. so All the dialogs and panels on programs are unreadable, because now i see braces everywhere. And now i can only work by logging into tty1
    but I can't work like this..
    I attached how my current screenshot looks like..

    Could anyone please give me advice, where can i set the system font back to defaul, or which *.conf to edit or which package to
    Code:
    dpkg-reconfigure
    in order to see everything again.

    Thank's in advance

    It would be so stupid to re-install operating system only because of this..

    Also I have to mention that I'm using ubuntu precise pangolin.

    And the problem starts even in the lightdm login screen.
    Also there's no difference whether I log in to ubuntu or ubuntu 2d

    The problem could be related to pango.

    when launching some applications, i noticed the error message "Unable to choose font"

    Whew. Finally solved it..

    The problem was that I had installed pangocairo from source. and it started causing the problems..
