where are wine's fonts..??
hi to all.. this is my first time posting in here, so I think it's necessary to give a brief description of my linux distro, coz it's a particular one: it's a 40 mb zipslack 10.0 distribution from slackware-running over a fat32 partition, but all of the time I'm upgrading it -with X, devel apps, etc- so, now it's not 40mb anymore.. but >than 1Gb ! (it's my little frankenstain so, there's a lot of libraries I've installed by myself -and, of course, a lot missing- but I'm makin it very well.. I think so.
now, straight to the point: I have installed wine, with help of the documentation and links in the winehq.org, and after doing it a couple of times, I get it working...but without fonts! I mean: I go to the menu list in kde, click over 'wine' folder, select -4ex: 'wine configuration' and there appears the dialog box..without any font!! it seems to work fine..in spite of there's no fonts... I have to guess which is the 'cancel' button..
Same thing with the notepad.exe (I won't write how I get it) ..I run it, it works..without fonts in the menu bar nor drop-down bars.. I can use it, and save changes.. coz I know where should be the 'save as' button..but that's all *hint: the title bar has got the fonts.. the problem is with the menu fonts, dialog-box fonts, etc...
I anybody can figure what's going on.... I'll appreciate a lot!
thanks in advance..

fonts in wine
Try installing a true type font.
I had the same problem when I installed wine
download arial32.exe from http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=105355
The file is from the corefonts project on sourceforge.
It looks like you only need one font to get it going.
