Sorry you're having this issue, but thanks for reporting it. I'd like to get details of your system, you can get this via Steam->Help->System Information. Thanks.

Here you go, keep in mind that I can run this through nvidia as well if you want testing with that.

I also attached an lddtree of the binary and didn't see anything missing. Also, fonts at the end.

It looks like you might be using arial, which might not be available on all installations. Here's an strace with a grep for the font. Another font might get better results, the startup binary refrences this as well

Applicationassets/fonts/arial.mve

assets/fonts.pfp refrences this as well
fonts/arial.mvecu,,fonts/tahoma.mvec�,�>fonts/xenonauts.mvecok�efonts/xenopedia.mvec

stat64("assets/fonts.pfp", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=209208, ...}) = 0
access("assets/fonts.pfp", R_OK) = 0
open("assets/fonts.pfp", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 10
read(10, "PFPK\4\0\0\0\20fonts/arial.mvecu\0\0\0,,\1"..., 131072) = 131072
stat64("assets/fonts.pfp", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=209208, ...}) = 0
access("assets/fonts.pfp", R_OK) = 0
open("assets/fonts.pfp", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 9
read(9, "PFPK\4\0\0\0\20fonts/arial.mvecu\0\0\0,,\1"..., 117) = 117
read(9, "PFPK\4\0\0\0\20fonts/arial.mvecu\0\0\0,,\1"..., 131072) = 131072
writev(9, [{";\3\5\0\4\0 \4\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\24\0\24\0;\3\5\0\5\0 \4\0\0\0\0"..., 88}, {"XFree86-Bigfont", 15}, {"\0", 1}], 3) = 104

Also, I'd be intrested if you are using xft to match fonts to what the system has. iirc, xft is used to match fonts.

# fc-match Arial
Arimo-Regular.ttf: "Arimo" "Regular"

I have the same problem on my Thinkpad with a Intel 4000 HD video card in a Gentoo Setup. I have a similar Setup (WM, Fonts etc.) on my Desktop which uses a nvidia Video Card and there i don't have any problems. Guess we can rule out the font issue but perhaps it has something to do with our Video Cards (Intel)

Sorry for the delay. So the launcher is using an older version of wxWidgets which seems to not want to use any default fonts on Gentoo. A workaround for the issue is to install a font it does like (adobe-100dpi). So run:

emerge media-fonts/font-adobe-100dpi

And restart your system. After that you should be able to see text in the launcher.

It works! Great Job. No Restart was required, though maybe a restart of Steam, cause i launched it after installing the font.
Thank you very much :)
