I have this problem that is driving me crazy... I have a fresh installation of Drupal 6 with the latest version of the Captcha module installed. The problem is that if we try to use image captcha the image gets displayed but only the background without text at all (except when we use the built in font).
Inittially I thought that GD Library for JPG or PNG support was not enabled or probably the Freetype support but according to my PHP info all that is enabled and working.
GD Support enabled
GD Version bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with TTF library
FreeType Version 1.4
GIF Read Support enabled
GIF Create Support enabled
JPG Support enabled
PNG Support enabled
WBMP Support enabled
XBM Support enabled
Do any of you experts had similar problems or have an Idea of where should I try to keep debugging this to try to get it fixed?
See the images below for a visual explanation... the first image is using a font but obviously is not being rendered, in the second image... when we use the built-in font the text is rendered just fine.
We're using the fonts that come with the module... and the installation and implementation is straight out of the box. We have the cache disabled too...
