Why do you think Arial is needed ?

All demos explicitly use a font, but never Arial. That is why gTTFontCache.ReadStandardFonts
should not be necessary.

Most demos use the LiberationSans font. Some use DejaVuSans or the Ubuntu font.
You must of course have these fonts installed in your system. The
LiberationSans font is included in the fonts subdirectory of the demo dir.

So the question is, why does not the demo program find these fonts ?
