Running steam using wine. Works perfectly except for a small error:

steam wine screenshot

All my text is italic for some reason.

I'm using the latest wine release 1.3.12 and Ubuntu 10.10

Thought I'd try here first, if this would be more appropriate in a more wine oriented discussion I'll be happy to move it.

Steam may be trying to use a Windows-specific font, and ending up with an italicized local replacement by accident. Try installing the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package to see if that helps.

Already have that installed. I also tried moving some fonts over from my windows partition after seeing that suggestion in a blog post to no avail. – febs Feb 3 '11 at 18:49
