No Text, at all, on Arch Linux

Hello there, so I recently installed Burpsuite , first through the Arch User Repository. I didn't have any text, the popups, the windows, the buttons, no text at all. Installing it through the .sh that is provided on here did not fix things. Greets, BitTron

Hi, Are you able to let us know what version of Arch Linux you are using? We can then investigate this issue further for you.

Hi, Thank you for the confirmation. I have carried out a quick test on this using ArcoLinux (with the 5.11.16-arch1-1 kernel and Xfce 4.16) and the official .sh installer but was not able to replicate this particular issue. Is the theme that you are using a default theme or one that you have installed separately? Does changing to a different, default theme alter Burp's behaviour at all or does this remain consistent regardless?

Okay, so I found out it is not the theme, and instead connected to the font. I installed MS Sans Serif on my Arch, it appears that when using that font, burp does not display any readable text. Changing my system font fixed that, thanks for helping me figure that out.
