Wine using wrong font.


Have fedora 17, installed the wine metapackage, so not sure what it's compiled with, but I do know that it downloaded the ms-ttf or whatever package that loads in the microsoft .exe fonts.


Trying to run powercalc.exe, i installed it from the package (as opposed to copying powercalc.exe)

Here is the wine appdb page: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ation&iId=8329

The problem is: The font it uses for formulas is getting the wrong font. It's using some symbol font that is unreadable.

Any ideas?

Launch the Wine Config. There you can specify the font you want to use for the application.
Before doing so be sure your wine installation was built with ms-corefonts and fontforge if not then you may add by installing them.

WineConfig was run before fontforge was installed.

I have since installed fontforge, and the ttf-mscorefonts are also installed.

When I load " $ winecfg ", I can't find any information about fonts? (well, i see a Font... dialog button on the Desktop Integration tab, but no way to enable it. It seems I would have to Install theme first, but I don't have any themes.

Output of fontforge:

(It does run, but shows a the dialog and this in BG).

Winecfg looks exactly like it did before installing fontforge
