Did you read my question at all before pointing to the FAQ???

Just for you information - the liberation fonts are installed by
default in fedora with the kde. And YES I used google which shows the
same problem being discussed in 2002, 2003 and 2008. That's why I
tried the export LANG=.....

So here is the question one more time, because obviously you didn't
take your time to think about an answer.

"I needed to use wineconsole and after installing the latest available
packages (1.3.1-1) I got the following message when trying to start
wineconsole cmd: err:wineconsole:WINECON_Fatal Couldn't find a decent
font, aborting

Installing different fonts and "export LANG= en_US.UTF-8" didn't help.
Does anyone have any idea? trying f13 and f14 gave me the same results
although the current packages in f13 are v.1.2.0."
