Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Inetl i3. Intel Skylake integrated graphics.
I have an application running on a remote host (Oracle database installer). I connect to that remote host from my Ubuntu laptop using putty with x-11 forwarding. (have also used the native ssh with the -X switch). In that putty (or ssh) session I launch the app. The interface comes up, so there is no issue with networking and x11 redirection. However, the app window is missing a lot of text, but not all. The screen looks like this: image of interface on Linux By contrast, peforming the very same operation (putty session to the very same remote server) from a Windows 7 machine gets the fully functional screen: image of interface on Windows
This appears to be very similar to How do I fix fonts . . . but in my case, it only exhibits on this one app, not the Ubuntu applets shown. And when I tried to follow the advice there regarding installing 'ubuntu-tweaks', I got "Unable to locate package ubuntu-tweak".
