Package: mate-control-center
Version: 1.8.3+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I was trying to view a font file in order to make my mind whether I
should install it or not. When seeing the font file via
mate-font-viewer I saw rectangular boxes instead of the images as
shared below.

I also saw the same in gnome-font-viewer and there it rendered without
an issue.

Looking forward to a fix and dialog with you.
