You might find this interesting;I think I'm on the track to fixing this issue. When I debug wine as it is loading winbox, it is looking for (and not finding) these font files: vgaoem.fon,vgafix.fon,serife.fon
Anyone have an idea where I can find these?

Well it appears I was looking at the wrong thing altogether. The fix was to alter a line in ~/.wine/system.reg.
It had some ridiculous number there and I changed it to 60 dpi just to be safe. here is what it looks like now:
[System\\CurrentControlSet\\Hardware Profiles\\Current\\Software\\Fonts] 1225516090
Much better, I hope this helps someone out there.
It did help someone else out there... ME! Thanks. This helped me fix the problem of turning the screen resolution up way too high to see all of the screen... just as described in the original post.

This is easy!
If you have a separate boot for Windows (2K, XP, or Vista) you just copy the fonts from the C:\Windows\Fonts\ folder into your Wine's windows\fonts\ folder.
Simple as that.
I don't need a native Linux version. I just need to find the proper fonts.There is no hope. Cus mikritik said: "winbox and the dude working perfect on wine and you dont need linux native versions". LOL
I've seen that one as well as the other one you mentioned. I don't have a windows xp (or windows anything for that matter) CD. I don't use Windows, so those are not an option. Thanks for the ideas and your search, though.You might find this interesting;
Perhaps the other files are in there too.
Hello, i'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and for solve my problem I added to the registry of Wine:
Create a file test.reg with this key, and on terminal:
My problem was solved.
I downgraded to Fedora 13, which uses the intel driver verion 2.11.0 and this solved my problem as well.it is a long shot, but if you have Intel card you should try to upgrade your drivers. There are reports of different windows programs having these black artefacts in simple UI interface using wine on different flavours of Linux.
check if you are running xf86-video-intel 2.12.0 or newer if so, try to downgrade to 2.11.0
Awesome! Where in the world did you find this? I've googled for WEEKS![HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver]
Old thread, I know, but I had a similar problem after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04 and this workaround fixed it. Winbox fonts changed, text fields were incomplete, and text cursor was misplaced, so when I typed something, new text appeared in a different place than the cursor.
