Non English Characters in Gadgets

Ran into this issue recently when adding certain gadgets to a dashboard. Software v 7.5.1. This is not for all gadgets, only ones with a X and Y axis. 

Language is set to English.

There is a known bug ticket for this problem in

It's not technically a bug in Jira, but we have found that some specific Linux OS instances that host Jira can have this specific problem when specific fonts are not installed.  There is a work-around listed on that page that should be able to resolve this, but you will likely need to be a linux admin and then run these commands in the terminal:

yum install ghostscript
yum install dejavu-fonts-common
yum install dejavu-sans-fonts
yum install dejavu-sans-mono-fonts
yum install motif

Once these are installed that should fix this.
