    wine text


    ok, i have a problem with this wine thing. so... everytime i run any setup file, like winamp (i wanted to install winamp just to see if it works), it opens it ok, but the problem is that i can't see text. instead of text there are some strange signs (circles, x-es, greek signs, , ˇ). how to make this "text" normal?
    i have screenshot of this situation but i don't know how to attach it to this post, so please give me instructions for that too!
    and another question: what does sign "no smoking" in wine shortcut on my desktop means?

    tnx
    bye

    If you want to post a picture, put it on the net somewhere and link to it using the url tag. For example, my old desktop is here.
    The code is

    Code:
    [url=http://www.fantasticfamily.net/jeremy/myHTML/desktop.html]here[/url]
    As for your Wine problem, it could be that you don't have your font directory correctly defined. What's your ~/.wine/config file say about font location? Change it to the whereever your fonts are located, or add the missing fonts to the location that's specified.

    I don't know about the no smoking sign.

    here

    i hope it's working :>!
    anyway, about that wine problem, i can't finf config file in .wine dir. so what should i change? in .wine dir there are only 2 directories (drive_c, dosdevices) and 3 files (system.reg, userdef.reg, user.reg).and where are fonts located by default?

    Your picture worked fine.

    As for the files, you'll have to wait until I get home, unless someone else can help. It'll be very late.

    hhmm i'm having a different problem but it's also with the text font.

    the text i get is correct but the problem is that it's too small to read i use K magnifier to be able to read the text on buttons etc...

    i think the solution to this problem would maybe be fixed just like your problem H00|j D0nK.
    Lets hope that Jermey gets home safe or maybe if somebody else knows what to do

    You should have a config file in your .wine home directory. You say you don't have one, though. Check roots home directory, perhaps it was installed there. There are a lot of configuration options in that file, I doubt wine will run properly without them. They define your temp files, map your windows drives to the Linux filesystem (i.e. a:=/mnt/floppy), and also define your font locations, which should be something like /usr/X11/X11R6/fonts. If you don't have one, you'll more then likely need to create one. I can post mine for you if you'd like, or you can search google for someone elses to use as a template. Or you can try to find out why it wasn't installed with wine. Did you use the latest rpm from winehq?

    i definetely installed the latest version. in my X11R6 folder there isn't any fonts dir, there are only bin, include, lib, man and share dirs. please post your font location or whatever is neccessary that wine works properly. i found in my home directory .fonts.conf file and .fonts.cache-1. so what to do next? please give me instructions step by step, whatever semms obvious to you, it doesn't seems to me (yo, i'm a n00b ).
