7 This may not be entirely relevant to your problem, but it's worth a check.
9 The fonts provided by the corefonts package are _badly_ corrupted, and
10 largely out-dated (it would even be worth to file a bug). For example,
11 if you make any GTK+ application use them (like any Xfce module or
12 emelFM2), it will display boxes instead of text.
14 So, check to make sure that Realplayer doesn't use Arial or something
15 similar. If it does, get your hands on the MS fonts from an existing
16 Windows installation, install them manually, remove corefonts and
17 check that the paths conform in xorg.conf and the xfs config file (if
18 you use the latter).
