Wine doesn't use .FON files, and I would be surprised if Quicken under 
Windows did either. Instead, try copying over all the .ttf files from a 
Windows installation to Wine. Wine does support TrueType fonts.

The current version of Wine has a few built in replacements for fonts, 
and perhaps these are too small (it seems like there have been several 
complaints lately). But if external TrueType fonts are found, Wine 
should use those.
