|Under recent X.Org builds, there have been trouble with the motif-based application Mathematica. More specifically, the "notebook" in Mathematica will show up garbled or with several font types missing (Headers, sections, in-out boxes).
I have seen this behaviour on two Gentoo boxes including my own, and this fix was the only thing working. If this particular fix does not work, try to look at the other posts which will show up by searching for "mathematica xorg" here on the forums.
First Step To Try
The Composite extensions for X.org seem to cause alot of problems for Mathematica, so try to disable it altogether.
Second Step To Try
Add the following fonts to your "Files" section of xorg.conf
Remember to insert the correct path to your Mathematica installation.
