    If you are using the latest upload, please file an issue which includes the output you're getting when you compile the program, and when you try to run it.

    I also need to know what distribution.

    Without this information there is really not much I can do with your comment. ;-)

    If you're not using the latest upload then please read my comment in the changelog and download the latest version then try again.

    Is there a way to change the default pangram? I know it is possible to use costume text, but it would be nice to have a default pangram with äöüß, because i'm from germany.

    Or, what about translating the application?

    Thanks for your comments.

    Font Manager now includes an option to ask Pango for a localized sample string and use that instead of the default pangram, this is already in SVN and will be available in the next release.

    It's an option in the Interface tab of the preferences dialog and it's enabled by default. Thanks for your suggestion. :-)

    As far as translating the program goes, anyone who would like to help on that front, or any other for that matter, is more than welcome to.
