fix "unable to open font"

Post by ted »

If you're getting messages like
unable to open font "*helvetica-medium-r-normal*--14*", using "fixed"
do this for Debian-related Linux distributions:

sudo apt-get install xfonts-100dpi
then log out and log back in.

For RedHat-related distributions, install xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi
