Fonts for Wine?


Hi I installed Wine on Debian Sid and the fonts look horrible. I don't mean the usual aesthetic complaints that some people have where they say they prefer MS fonts - I mean the fonts look all but unreadable.

Do I need to install some kind of font package - and if so where can I get this?

Check out winetools, I think there are fonts there (and lots of other essential stuff that will help you run more programs under wine!)
