So, it appears that one of the causes of this could have been not having dejavu font installed. However, in my case this was not true. I did have it installed. After fiddling with it for an hour or so I ended up completely uninstalling OpenJDK from my CentOS box along with uninstalling the JDK I had downloaded from Sun and reinstalling from the rpm.

Charts now render correctly.

Hello LogicBomb Media,

I'm glad you were able to get it working. Per our supported platforms we don't currently test with OpenJDK and highly recommend using one of Oracle's current distributions.

Thank you

I am not using open JDK and am using Oracle current JDK 1.7 and am still getting the same error. Please advice

Hello Satya,

Please open a support ticket at support.atlassian.com for further investigation.

Thank you

I am having the same problem and JDK reinstall is not helping. I have CentOS

Satya,

Be sure not to just reinstall the JDK from yum. You'll want to complete uninstall OpenJDK from yum and then manually download the JDK from Sun and install via RPM.

Edit

I just saw your comment below: Have you confirmed that you have the dajavu font installed?
