Our latest release has been having some font trouble on Solus. Our snapcraft.yaml file hasn’t changed between releases so I’m wondering if it’s something to do with the integration. We’re seeing the following error which causes the app to fail to launch. Noto Sans is a Google web font we include in our Electron app.

I’ve also tested on Ubuntu and there’s no such error there. A little bit of Googling reveals that another project has had similar issues more info. Their suggestion was to include the desktop plug, however when we tried this we ended up with no fonts rendering whatsoever.
Any help would be much appriciated! Thanks
