"the font is missing" is f****g useless: you already know that. it will be something like a directory name, or a .so missing, or a .so loaded from a *different directory* or... a config file that is missing or... basically something right at the start. by the time you get to "the fonts are not loaded"... well... you already know that, so you're clearly *not* looking for that... ... *UNLESS*.... the locations where each system is *looking* for the fonts is different. *that* is something you will want to know. track and *interpret* the differences... don't just go "errr there are differences". work backwards for what the *important* differences are. l.
