Font problems

Whenever I lauch certain applications (swmgr, xvm manager) I'm getting the following error:

Code: Select all

Warning: Cannot convert string "-monotype-arial-regular-r-normal--*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-15" to type FontStruct

and the fonts come out like:


I can't find monotype arial anywhere (tried reinstalling all the fonts from my base CDs) nor do I know why these applications are looking for it.

Not sure where to go from here :?

Running IRIX 6.5.27 F.
Oh, yes, I too have that font.

It is not possible to read a single menu option in that program.
Do you have your language options set to something with ISO8859-15? Try setting it to Latin...-ISO8859-1, I also had that problem with my xterm fonts
Such bugs and goblins in my life!
