Either way, that error message is wrong.

Hello,

The docs say that FG supports Unicode.  However I tried to use degree sign in the tooltip (inserted it literally to XML in UTF-8) and load some SVG to canvas with UTF-8 text - in both cases Unicode text simply isn't shown, thought everything else is OK.  BTW when starting FG I get the message

  canvas::Text: Failed to open font file /path/to/fgdata/Fonts/LiberationFonts/LiberationMono-Bold.ttf

even though the file exists.

I build OSG, SG and FG from sources, so maybe I miss some compile-time option to enable Unicode (or just pulled the sources at the wrong moment)?
