           Summary: fonts in applications using cairo ( not only through GTK
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.29.
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-gui
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: leidola at newcon.de

Any GTK+ application running in wine, where gtk >= 2.8, has wrong fonts -
sometimes they are too big, sometimes there are wrong symbols all over.

Just install mono-win32 and have a look at the gtk#-examples.

GTK >= 2.8 uses cairo for font rendering and cairo in turn uses the native win32
font api (not pango!). Therefore I looked for some sample code using __only__
cairo on win32 to see if it works -- it doesn't. The sample code is attached,
here are two screenshots:
