I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu and I can't run xvkbd properly. I get these errors:

$ xvkbd
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-lucidatypewriter-bold-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
xvkbd: Mode_switch not available as a modifier
xvkbd: although ISO_Level3_Shift is used instead, AltGr may not work correctly
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-lucida-bold-i-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
xvkbd: Mode_switch not available as a modifier
xvkbd: although ISO_Level3_Shift is used instead, AltGr may not work correctly

How can i solve this? I'm trying to use this with xbindkeys.

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-fonts xfonts-75dpi xfonts-100dpi

for sun-java6-fonts you need sun java JRE, you can get it here: https://github.com/flexiondotorg/oab-java6
