this bug is a rather exotic one, I confess, but still wanted to share:
if you run a win32 juce app on linux using the wine win32 emulator, the fonts disappear (at least on my ubuntu 7.04 & wine 0.9.33 test setup over here). Easy to reproduce using the command “wine juce_demo.exe”.
You might ask why bother, since juce has fantastic support already for native linux apps. That’s absolutely true, but here’s the case: this impacts also juce win32 vsts that run using the dssi bridge (which depends on wine). Yes, juce can do native linux vsts too, and I love it for it. But alas, not many linux hosts support that yet (only the superb energyXT I believe), and most use some kind of win32 emulation if they support vsts at all.
Sidenote: a dssi -> native vst bridge would be a killer thing imho. Then Rosegarden & co could run native linux vsts
