    Wine Font Problem on Madrake 10.1


    Hi

    I installed Wine from Mandrake 10.1 official CD and started notepad.exe.
    So far it works but I have wrong fonts. It looks crazy.

    look at for a screenshot
    www.swissmusicradio.ch/wine.png

    The fonts are wrong and the size x:y seams also to be wrong in open dialog.

    I installed the wine rpm with the Mandrake Packet Manager

    Any idea what is wrong?

    Michael.

    Try changing the default font in your ~/.wine/config file.

    Hi

    I changed local users .wine/config

    from
    [fonts]
    ;Read the Fonts topic in the Wine User Guide before adding aliases
    ;See a couple of examples for russian users below
    "Resolution" = "96"
    "Default" = "-adobe-helvetica-"
    "DefaultFixed" = "fixed"
    "DefaultSerif" = "-adobe-times-"
    "DefaultSansSerif" = "-adobe-helvetica-"

    to
    [fonts]
    ;Read the Fonts topic in the Wine User Guide before adding aliases
    ;See a couple of examples for russian users below
    "Resolution" = "96"
    "Default" = "sans"
    "DefaultFixed" = "terminal"
    "DefaultSerif" = "sans"
    "DefaultSansSerif" = "sans"

    No success. Still this fonts...

    Mandrake 10.1 1280x1024 screen.

    I don't know that you can use the generic "sans" like you can with css. Can you? Try giving it a specific font that is found in the font directory listed in the config file.
