Font not found error


I am running RHEL 6.3 and am having a problem installing an "external software program" that fails with:

Font -*-courier-medium-R-Normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-* was not found.
Using default system fonts (fixed).
Error:
Default Font -*-fixed-medium-R-Normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-* was not found

I've performed a "yum install bpg-courier-fonts" (I think successfully as it appears in the /usr/share/fonts directory) but the program error persists.

Thank you in advance for any help...

Shane

Thank you John VV. Added the fonts you recommended (and numerous other), unfortunately the problem continues. The command "fc-list -v" shows the all the fonts to be there however I notice that the courier is not "exactly" as the call from the external program. Is there a way to "alias" the "courier" to the "courier new" font?

Again my thanks and regards.

It is likely that this "unknown" software might be looking for the microsoft fonts
installing the liberation fonts ( if not installed should fix it
Code:
su -
yum search fonts

----- then from the long list install it ( if there ) -------------

yum install liberation-fonts-common
and if that dose not work look into installing Install "Microsoft Truetype Fonts"
the mjmwired page for fedora will work just fine for installing the fonts
