Font problems on X-Windows

I am running Mathematica 3.0 remotely on an IBM UNIX terminal from an SGI workstation using X-Windows. I invoke the command <xhost +> on my terminal, and then telnet to the host and run the <setenv DISPLAY []> command so that the windows are displayed on my terminal. Then I run Mathematica 3.0 It runs fine, except that the fonts are weird. While starting, it gives me an error that reads: "The Mathematica fonts are not properly installed in your system. Without these fonts, typeset mathematical expressions cannot be displayed properly" Has anyone encountered this before? Some characters look fine, while others (Math operators and greek letters, for example) are garbled. Do I need to install a Mathematica font set locally on the IBM station serving as an X-Windows terminal, and where do I get it? Any insight into my problem would be much appreciated. thanks, -- ============================================= Ramon Lopez-Aleman Physics Dept Pennsylvania State University 111-D Osmond Lab email: lopez at phys.psu.edu http://www.phys.psu.edu/~lopez =============================================
