Firstly, a point of netiqette :

It is bad form to start a new thread by replying to an existing 
message. There are two reasons for this.

a) Your question has nothing to do with guage and therefore does not 
belong in a thread about problems using guage values.

b) Even if you change the subject, there are hidden details in the 
message that are used by programs to build threads - the result is 
that when looking at a thread in the archives, there will suddenly be 
a random change of subject.

Now, to your problem. What steps have you taken to try and help 
yourself first ?

You say that you get an error "failed to load 
"/usr/share/rrdtool/fonts/DejaVuSansMono-Roman.ttf", have you looked 
to see if this file exists or not ? What was the result ?

If the file isn't there, then you have the answer - the font is 
missing, and the solution should be fairly obvious.

If it IS there, then say so, and then perhaps someone could suggest 
where to go in troubleshooting why it didn't load.

Are you using the latest version or some other version ? If it's an 
old version, have you tried updating it ?
