Darwine applications have no fonts in OSX

After installing (dar)WINE on my Leopard MBP, I tried to run DPlot (a great graphing windows only application from www.dplot.com).

It runs, but had access only 2 of fonts, which is clearly not enough.

You can get extra windows compatible ttf fonts called Liberation fonts from Redhat. Unzip them and then copy then into the correct directory:

cp ~/desktop/liberation-fonts/* ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/

This puts the fonts in your own WINE settings, for other users copy for them as well
