Does any one know whether Mathematica graphics works in X11.
I got the following error message when I tried the following
simple graphics command.

In[1]:= Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}]
0.383333 Second

Out[1]= -Graphics-

In[2]:= %%[ Error: setup_fonts: can't load font; OffendingCommand: (null) ]%%

It seems that Mathematica cannot handle the font names in the
latest release of the X window system.  I would appreciate it very
much if anyone has any suggestions for solving this problem.
