    Problem in Wine with Russian[cyrillic] Fonts or Codepages


    While trying to run a program in Wine , I encountered a problem with russian alphabet. There are 2 scenarios:

    1. when I start the program in such a way:
    wine start run.bat
    it displays some symbols, not letters...



    2.when I start the program in such a way:
    LANG=ru_RU.CP1251 wine start run.bat
    [as far as I understand using the RU locale]

    now it displays the letters from Cyrillic alphabet, but also some problem persists, because it's not displaying the right letters...

    in both cases in the Terminal is displayed the following error:
    :WineEngCreateFontInstance Untranslated charset 255
    May that could help in solving the problem...


    What I have already done:
    1. Copied the Windows fonts in the Wine's Fonts folder[Windows/Fonts]
    2. Generated the locales for RU
    3. Copied the fonts in /usr/share/fonts
    And as you see - No Results!



    Please help me solving it!!!

    Does it display right cyrillic characters and some extra bad characters, or is everything it shows nonsense?

    I'd start solving charset problems by installing stock fonts. Please try this How to set-up cyrillic in wine?? - Ubuntu Forums (namely, sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts) and tell us whether it helped you.
