I've got the same problem with this message in mythfrontend.log:

E CoreContext mythfontproperties.cpp:406 (ParseFromXml) MythFontProperties:
Failed to load 'Droid Sans', got 'DejaVu Sans'
/usr/share/mythtv/themes/MythCenter-wide/osd.xml @ 251#012#011#011#011Name:
'medium'#011Type: 'fontdef'

But on my system (MythBuntu 0.28) it looks like the font is installed so
why am I getting that message in mythfrontend.log?

$ locate Droid
