I think the problem is that the bit-mapped fonts from Windows (i.e. *.fon) are not going to be
handled under Wine just by copying the files or checking a configuration setting. It will take
more effort than the vector fonts (TrueType and Postscript) that are sufficient for most

See http://www.winehq.org/site/docs/wine-user/config-fonts-main

Having not done this myself in a long time, I can't tell you whether the documentation is
still accurate or those procedures will work. HTH.
