Summary0002951: Grid text is not rendered
DescriptionAccording to rand0m:

Hi guys,
the recent version of darkradiant (1.7) is unable to display the grid numbers in the ortho view due to use of the deprecated "gdk::gl::font::use_pango_font" function. When switching between editor layouts, crashes can occur.
I rewrote the broken code with the use of the ftgl-library, freetype and fontconfig. If you are interested in the code, pm me. Unfortunately I don't have permission to upload diff-files.
The only problem with my "solution" is that fontconfig is only available on *nix systems. I use it to get the path to the appropriate font files. A similar mechanism for Windows is missing since I'm not familiar with the internals of the windows font support.
Additional InformationI fixed this by implementing rand0m's patch and packaging two free fonts with DarkRadiant. The Win32 implementation of GLFont doesn't use fontconfig, instead it's looking up the TTF files in the ui/fonts folder.
