Try to use gnome-font-properties and set your main font to Cartwright

Trouble is, the X server can be installed with no fonts, and as such no
font is guaranteed to be present for sur. May be I can try to
see if multiple fallbacks can be specified. Then I will file bug+patch
with fonts from freefont, from xfonts, from free ttf packages, etc.
