Grokbase Groups R r-help June 2002
Thanks, I had searched the 2002 and 2001 archives, your "some
time ago" was quite a time ago.

The problem was solved by adding
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi"
to /etc/X11/XF86Config
(I had the unscaled versions:
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"

The hard point here has been relating the error message in R
to the Helvetica fonts and the Helvetica fonts to the
above Font paths.

Might it be to consider that the R installation program
check for the presence of these font paths in XF86Config ?
Or perhaps a note in the Rinstall guide?
