You might have the same problem than me. If you use the scilab-bin
package from the unstable branch. It is build with GTK ? If this is the
case I think the error comes from the zterm program used by scilab. On
my debian it is unable to find any font whatever I give him.
I think this should be done in the scilab script. There is a line where
zterm is launched.
when you do zterm -h in the right directory it seems to give the
possibility to change the font but it always fail on my computer. I
change only the size but I get an awfully pixelized fond not really
readable. (if i do nothing the font is 3 or 4 pixels high, thus unusable)
I haven't got the problem with version build against the xaw library.
I would be interested if anyone had a clue to solve the problem
