I am installing Spectrum on RedHat Linux and getting an error during the .setuplin.exe part. The X11 Window drawn the setup GUI ok but when I select a component to install, whether Spectrum or SRAdmin, the next dialog will only show garbage characters and the text is unreadable.
In Command Line while running the setup, there is an error: "Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion"
This issue is likely caused by missing X11 fontsets for the OS.
First thing you can try to to set the locale variables in case these are not set properly.
Run the following:
You can verify by running
Next is to verify X11 fonts are installed. You can see what fonts are installed with command fc-list
RedHat support mentions new Linux installations planning to use X Applications need to have font groups installed. See link below in "Additional Information" section.
yum groupinstall fonts
A possible specific font which could be causing the issue may be xorg-x11-fonts-Type1.noarch
Last, if the above does not solve the issue, you may want to run debug during the install for a more verbose output for further clues:
then run the installer again and make note of any errors and research against the errors for possible solutions.
