Hi all,

I got a problem with Wine. I compiled Wine from source on Debian Squeeze. Everything is working perfect, only fonts aren't loaded well. The Window buttons are always showed as weird characters (differs sometimes) and in games all text exists of squares. See the screens:

I tried to copy all fonts from a Windows 7 installation to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/ (this worked on an Ubuntu install before) but it looks like Wine doesn't do anything with the fonts. Also tried the winetricks script to install fonts, but neither worked.

Running wine in debug mode doesn't give usefull information (I think), I only got these errors (a lot of more identical lines):


err:wincodecs:PngEncoder_CreateInstance Trying to save PNG picture, but PNG support is not compiled in.
fixme:ole:CoCreateInstance no instance created for interface {00000103-a8f2-4877-ba0a-fd2b6645fb94} of class {27949969-876a-41d7-9447-568f6a35a4dc}, hres is 0x80004005

I googled a lot for the answer but I only find the above solutions.

Does anybody have a clue what's going on?
