I can see these are the official gnustep packages for debian. What
backend are you using? The recommended backend is cairo (I suppose the
package gnustep-back0.24-cairo). After install it check if gnustep is
really using it. Run in a shell "defaults read NSGlobalDomain
GSBackend". If not set it with "defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend

You can also try the packages of Philippe. But these are for Wheezy, not
sure if can work on Jessie:


Hope this help.
