No, that's an OpenGL issue that's been discussed before. Downgrade your 
video driver. I think what he's referring to is that the screen all 
draws correctly, but no text is displayed - ever.

To the OP - whatever fonts your theme are using need to be installed. 
Since you said you're running Retro which uses Trebuchet MS, you need to 
install Trebuchet MS which is in the msttcorefonts package I told you to 
install in my first reply.
