Winecfg looks weird


I'm trying to run the winecfg configuring tool. The dialog opens but the problem is that instead of fonts I only see some weird mess. I assume there is some easy solution for this???

I'm running suse 9.3 and the latest version of wine.

i.e. you cannot read the text in the dialog box.

On my system, the winecfg dialog does not use the system font.
Do you have the windows fonts installed?

I'm not sure the solution is simple - how did you install wine?

BTW: put your distro type in your profile along with some indication about your location. This will help - especially in long threads where the first post may be several pages back.

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts (best done before installing wine)
