Really good alternative to Sublime Text. A light-weighted and clean editor, with few plugins to extend it to your needs. Few bugs have been already fixed on Github.

The file explorer of Light Table (Linux version) shows squares instead of letters under Ubuntu 18.04. Moreover, it’s nothing special. Bluefish, Geany or Atom are much better. And the project seems to be more or less discontinued. The last version (0.8.1) is from 2016, and while i’m writing this, we have 2019.

That happens normally when the app is not native to Linux, but runs over wine or mono, that is a runtime translation library to Windows executables, you should install Microsoft Fontson your Linux Distro, I bet that is what is missing on you installation.

I don't know why this is marked as discontinued. There is activity in the Github repository (at least as of two months ago) and the website is still up and running, with a strategy post from 2017.
