Hi,

I expect that the Helvetica request comes from the
Frontend menues and this is lited I your X resources

$TopDirectory/SystemFiles/FontEnd/SystemResources/X/XMathematica

request the helvetica font:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!
! GENERAL GUI STYLE / COLOR SETTINGS
!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

! Choose your GUI widget background color.
! CDE: Comment this out.
*background: #c0c0c0

! Choose a font for buttons/text fields, etc.
! You can use xfontsel to get a listing of fonts.
!*Menu*fontList: -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-*-*-*-*

! Or just set all the fonts at once.
*fontList: -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-*-*-*-*


Regards
  Jens
