I have succesfully installed a greek-english dictionary under wine and 
the greek fonts don't appear correctly, here is the FONTS part of my 

;Read the Fonts topic in the Wine User Guide before adding aliases
;See a couple of examples for russian users below
"Resolution" = "120"
"Default" = "-adobe-helvetica-"
"DefaultFixed" = "fixed"
"DefaultSerif" = "-adobe-times-"
"DefaultSansSerif" = "-adobe-helvetica-"

; default TrueType fonts with greek encoding
"Default" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-7"
"DefaultFixed" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-7"
"DefaultSerif" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-7"
"DefaultSansSerif" = "-monotype-arial-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-7"
; default greek bitmap X fonts
"Default" = "-cronyx-helvetica-"
"DefaultFixed" = "fixed"
"DefaultSerif" = "-cronyx-times-"
"DefaultSansSerif" = "-cronyx-helvetica-"

; the TrueType font dirs you want to make accessible to wine
"dir1" = "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF"

All i have done is to add the name of the TTF fonts with greek 
support(-iso8859-7) but i get nothing.

I would really appreciate any help from you

Yours Sincerely
