   In one of the few threads I could Google out of the Internet you
mentioned to someone else about setting the desktop to 640x480. Doing
that on my machine allowed a window to pop up and then disappear
immediately with the same error message.

   I looked at my installation using Synaptic and it appears to have
pretty standard stuff installed, including True Type fonts. I have
removed a couple of editors, like Abiword, which I don't use at all, so
it is possible that some fonts got removed. If the Wine web site has
info specifically about fonts I haven't found it yet.
