Unable to load screen15 font, trying fixed


I am having a problem while running xterm or vim editor. I have set the font for these applications to Screen15. But whenever, I start these applications, I get error saying unable to load font Screen15, trying fixed.

What can be the reason for this? Do I need to install these Screen* fonts seperately? I guess they come with Linux distribution.

Please help.
