Most numbers won't show up [SOLVED]

I’m using Audacity 2.1.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. In some places, the numbers show up like normal, like in some parts of effect and generate windows. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling with apt, but it hasn’t worked.

What is the system language on your computer?
Have you set a specific language in Audacity preferences or are you using the default?

I’m using US English on my computer and the default on Audacity. I tried changing it to English to see if anything changed, but nothing did.

Where did 2.1.2 come from? How did you install it? I don’t see anything on the Ubuntu bug tracker about this, so perhaps it is specific to your computer.

Have you installed open source graphics drivers? These can cause issues.


I found a solution. I recently installed a color emoji font, and if I disable it, the numbers show up like normal. I still don’t know why it was causing problems, though.

Thanks for saying what fixed it. So I will mark the topic as “[SOLVED]” and lock it.
