I am unable to see some of the text in the instance property editor and LSW (screenshot attached). Based on the following thread, it appears to be that I am missing a font on my system. Apparently this font is used in old Motif interfaces.
Can anyone tell me what the font is that I am missing so that I can install it?Thanks
Nevermind, I just fixed it by installing:
This font can be set in your ~/.Xdefaults or ~/Xresources file. You may have it set to a font that is not installed. To query the font setting, try this in a terminal window:
xrdb -query | grep labelFont
You should see something like this (This is my setting and is probably installed on most systems. I'm assuming your font may be more obscure than this or it may have a spelling mistake in it.):
You can also set the font using these steps:
1. Add the font resource entry to your ~/.Xdefaults file. If a font was returned by the query, don't use it, but use a font that is defined on your system. The xlsfonts command will tell you what fonts are installed. The entry in the .Xdefaults file should be of a similar format to what is shown above.
2. From a shell window, run this command:xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults
3. Restart Cadence to see if it worked.
The font that is correctly appearing in your forms is also a font you can define. Since this font is working, it could be used for your labelFont as well if the helvetica font shown above doesn't work.
Try:xrdb -query Opusorxrdb -query textFont
Hope this helps.

Actually when I run cadence (virtuoso) I get this font error:
*WARNING* Unable to find font name: "-*-courier-medium-r-*-*-12-*".
*WARNING* Cannot find textFont. Trying font "fixed".
*WARNING* Unable to find font name: "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-12-*".
*WARNING* Using the text font to present labels.
*WARNING* Unable to find font name: "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-14-*".
*WARNING* Using the text font for Help dialogs.
I don't know where can I find these fonts, how can I CHANGE the default fonts etc.
Could you please help on this?

Same problem. If you find a solution, post please. I will do the same.
In reply to wighou:
There is a solution a few posts back in the history - it suggests a package to install. The key thing is that you have some fonts missing on your machine.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thanks Andrew, the solution was to install xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi
> yum install xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi
