wcmd - continued font problems

Tony, et. all,
   Hi. Happy Holidays.

   I'm still struggling along with getting Wine to really run on an
important audio machine. I have run Wine now on 3 machines:

1) An older Redhat 7.0 machine running Gnome
2) An up-to date Redhat 7.3 machine running KDE used for office type
3) An up to date Redhat 7.3 machine running KDE used for Pro Audio

   The results running wcmd are:

Machine 1) wcmd runs with no error messages

Machine 2) wcmd runs, but gives the following messages:

[mark at hindemith mark]$ wcmd
err:wineconsole:WCUSER_SetFont wrong font
err:wineconsole:WCUSER_SetFont wrong font
[mark at hindemith mark]$

Machine 3) wcmd fails to run with the error messages:

[mark at Godzilla mark]$ wcmd
err:wineconsole:WINECON_Fatal Couldn't find a decent font, aborting

[mark at Godzilla mark]$

   So, to some extent it looks like it's possible to set up RH7.3 using KDE
and get Wine to run wcmd. I need to get Wine running on Machine #3, and am
studying the differences between machines #2 & #3, but haven't discovered
what matters yet.

   Wine actually does run on machine #3, but fails to install many
applications due to font problems. The only response I got from the
developers was to try installing more fixed sized fonts. This is too vague
for a putz like me to execute successfully, and besides, I don't like

   Has anyone else run into these error messages in recent history? If so,
how have you solved your problems?

Thanks in advance,
