razing32 commented on 8 February 2018 at 10:13 pm UTC

Hey there,
Having some issues running Kohan 2 kings of war in Steam via wine
The game crashes on star with the error it is missing LBRITED.TTF
I have acquired this font online and tried to copy it to every directory wine is supposed to look for it but no go, game still crashes.

Article on font location under wine

Anyone have first hand experience with fonts under wine ?

Copy it to any of the directories that fontconfig understands.

That is in $HOME/.local/share/fonts for local install or in /usr/share/fonts/truetype for global install.

That worked for me in the past. If it doens't for you, possibly the font you got is corrupted. Can you use it in general, like in LibreOffice?

That did the trick - copied them to the local/share and tested them in LibreOffice Writer
