Xfig Problem

  1. May 5, 2006 #1
    I'm trying to use xfig in debian but when I try to write a text in my pictures I get the message:

    'Can't find -*-times-medium-r-normal--13-*-*-*-*-*-ISO8859-*, using 6'

    What is annoying cause I cannot change the size of the font and the text is so small that I cannot read it! Okay, I know very little about how to use linux and xfig, so I'm asking for help... Does anyone know how can I fix it?

    Looks like you're short a font or two. If you're running your own system, you may be able to fix it by installing some sort of x fonts package.
