[GRASS-user] Rendering labels in GRASS Cartographic Composer from vector layer

I'm attempting to add labels from a vector layer column to a map, but so far
haven't succeeded.

I've run v.labels to generate a file:

v.label labels=hydrobasins
map=hydobasins_asia_vc_chaophraya_vc_vcatadd_vc at hydrolayers column=SUB_NAME
type=centroid font=DejaVuSansMono

The file generated is attached: hydrobasins
<http://osgeo-org.1560.x6.nabble.com/file/n5048403/hydrobasins>  .

I then edit the .psmap that I originally exported from the GRASS
Cartographic Composer, adding the following lines:

labels hydrobasins at hydrolayers

NOTE: hydrobasins is located in the hydrolayers MAPSET:

When I import the modified .psmap file and click on preview, I'm unable to
see the labels?

I'd be grateful for any suggestions as to where I might be going wrong, or
if a font issue?
