I posted this error in stackoverflow assuming it was an R problem. However, more and more I'm inclined to believe it is linux related error. The moment I press enter after typical plot command a small window pops up but empty and I get the error

Error in grid.Call(C_textBounds, as.graphicsAnnot(x$label), x$x, x$y, : X11 font -adobe-helvetica-%s-%s-*-*-%d-*-*-*-*-*-*-*, face 1 at size 11 could not be loaded

I updated the system, installed the packages suggested in the mentioned post yet without any succuss. could you please help?

Thank you


I already tried the answer here but it didn't work.


You need to set the bitmap to "cairo".
