I use an Arch-Linux that is at actual state (rolling realease) with 
Mate-desktop, nvidia-driver, Gambas is version 3.17.3. This problem is 
there for over an year or longer. Benoit wrote somewhen that Mate had 
multiple problems with many software. Thats long ago.

The thing is that Gambas is almost unuseable cause you cant see where 
you are typing. I have used an other destop for a time, this worked, but 
had to revert to mate, and still its unuseable. The system was installed 
new at he time, no change for Gambas.

Need a description how to get fonts installed the way gambas needs it.
