wine cannot find fonts
 
I compiled and installed:
Wine 20031212

Everything appeared to go fine and programs do run but wine has some sort of font problem. I get the little box for a character that usually shows up when a program doesn't know what a specific char is.
Along with this message from wine:
fixme:font:WineEngCreateFontInstance just using first face for now

Anyone else have this problem / know the solution ??

Thanx

Well... I'm about to answer my own questions... seems I posted this one a little too soon :)

For anyone else that finds this looks for the same solution here it is

Edit the config file ! lol

it's in <HOME>/.wine
filename == config

edit config and you'll see something like this

[FontDirs]
"dir1" = "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF"
;"dir2" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype"
;"dir3" = "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TT"
;"dir4" = "/usr/share/fonts/TT"

Remove the ; from the ones you're using and edit them to the correct paths

Done
