Dear list:

I have a problem using the software praat. When I try to run this program I receive the following message:

% praat
Font "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-100-75-75-*-*-iso8859-1" not found. Trying Courier instead.
Praat requires the Adobe fonts Times, Helvetica, Courier and Symbol.
Praat may now crash.
X Error of failed request:  BadFont (invalid Font parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  56 (X_ChangeGC)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  4449
  Current serial number in output stream:  4452

I have updated all the system but the problem persist. Any idea?
