Try setting the image type after you draw on it.

  • identify -list format
and make sure the TTF format has a mode of r-- and a modern version of the Freetype library. You also need a font that supports a Unicode encoding. The Helvetica font under Linux comes from the Ghostscript font collection. It may not support Unicode.
