No Font Only square boxes


When I start Bleachbit 4 there is no text whatsoever. All there is little squares. It's odd because on my laptop I upgraded to Bleachbit 4 and there is no problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled but no change. I did find a reply to a google search that said it may be a font issue with Windows 10 but I seem unable to find it again. Any suggestions.


BleachBit version: 
Your operating system: 
Windows 10

This seems to be the same issue as reported in the issue tracker: Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file on Windows 10 #901.

If you click on the BleachBit icon in the top-left corner, does the font look normal? If so, please open the preferences and enable debug logging. If any interesting messages appear after you restart, please paste them here.

Is your system set to US English? If you are able, please click on the menu, then "diagnostics," then look for the line like locale.getdefaultlocale = ('en_US', 'UTF-8'), copy it, and paste it here.
