Problem in Wine with Russian Fonts or Codepages

vovuntu Posts: 1

While trying to run a program in Wine , I encountered a problem with russian alphabet. There are 2 scenarios:

1. when I start the program in such a way:

wine start run.bat

it displays the charcters in that way




as you see the program is using pseudo-graphics...

2.when I start the program in such a way:

LANG=ru_RU.CP1251 wine start run.bat

[as far as I understand using the RU locale]

This is what I got:



As you can see, now it's the Cyrillic alphabet, but also someproblem persists...

in both cases in the Terminal is displayed the following error:

:WineEngCreateFontInstance Untranslated charset 255

May that could help in solving the problem...


What I have already done:

1. Copied the Windows fonts in the Wine's Fonts folder[Windows/Fonts]

2. Generated the locales for RU

3. Copied the fonts in /usr/share/fonts

And as you see - No Results!

Please help me solving it!!!:(
