I have recently installed Templot 211b on OSX 10.4.11 / Wine 1.4.1 but most of the text is displayed as boxes as per the screenshot.

The extract from Wine's console.log is as follows.

XFree86 Version 4.4.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
[DRI] screen 0 installation complete
Screen 0 added: 1280x800 @ (0,0)
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!
2014-12-26 22:17:41.012 Wine[7373] /Users/mike/Wine Files/drive_c/TEMPLOT_DEV/templot_2.exe

Any suggestions to do with file/directory permissions on the mac or fonts required in the wine/windows fonts directory would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

When running under Wine, Templot uses the "Liberation Sans" font, which is an open source replacement for the Microsoft proprietary fonts, see:

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberation_fonts

You need to install this font in your Wine fonts folder, although why it is not already there is a bit puzzling. Did you install Linux/Wine via Codeweavers Crossover, Winebottler, or something else?

Sorry my knowledge of Macs is almost nil, but I'm sure others on here will be able to help.

regards,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your help.

I've downloaded the fonts from http://www.fontsy.com/font_details_21967.html and copied to the wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts directory and that has done the trick.

I am using winebottler, but an older version for compatibility so maybe the font wasn't included in the older version?

Anyway, now to get on with trying out Templot.

Michael
