Text in Wine not displaying properly.


Greetings.

I'm having some severe problems with Wine. The only text it displays properly is the window titles. All of the rest is completely unreadable.

Most of the characters don't display at all, meaning it just leaves a blank space where they should be, but a few show up as boxes (like when you're trying to display foriegn characters and have your browser set for english characters only). Some of them also show up as small dots.

I'd give you a screen shot, but don't know how under linux.

You probably want to install some truetype fonts in your fake windows, particularly the windows standards like Arial and Courier

Woah! You'd think I would have thought of that.

Thanks for your help. Works now.
