On many installations, and even when running just wcmd, I'm getting
this error message:
[mark at Godzilla mark]$ wcmd
err:wineconsole:WINECON_Fatal Couldn't find a decent font, aborting
[mark at Godzilla mark]$ wine --version
[mark at Godzilla mark]$
I've quickly searched through the Devel and User archives, and searched
using Google, but found just about nothing on the subject. The only
suggestion was to run in 640x480 desktop mode, which I tried but it
didn't help at all. Tony has been very helpful at Wine-User but we
haven't discovered the solution.
Wine is running Quicken, Winzip and WS_FTP just fine. I've tried WinAmp3
which comes up but does not generate sound at all. I'm using the new
Jack drivers for Wine, so I wasn't expecting perfection in that area
just yet, but hope to work with Chris Morgan to make that more solid. I
have lots of Windows audio apps to try out.
My machine is RH 7.3, running Alsa and Jack for sound and doing high-end
audio stuff. It's up to date with new RPMs, but is a sort of
minimalistic machine in terms of non-audio apps. Wine is from CVS
yesterday. I'm running a no Windows installation. I'm currently running
Can you folks recommend how I go about fixing this? What fonts are
required to be installed to make Wine happy? How do I give you good
feedback if I can't run the debugger? This morning I've done:
but chose to not overwrite my current registry file.
Let me know if you need more information.
I appreciate your help in advance.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
