[help] Warning coming from xdvi

Hi, everyone. I got two warning when I used xdvi to view dvi file.

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct

How to fix this? Thanks for help!

That message means that your dvi file is using a font that either is not installed on your system or is in a directory that the font server is not looking in. Type1 Helvetica fonts should be in /usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi (or /usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi), as part of the xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi package. Type this in a terminal window to see if your font server (if you're running one) can see any Helvetica fonts:
xlsfonts | grep -i helvetica

Hi, RupertPupkin. I don't have 75dpi but 100dpi, so I tried to find helvetica fonts in /usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi, and found no one. I also ran "xlsfonts | grep -i helvetica"

The result is:

Should I get helvetica fonts and put it into /usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi?
