Just started with PlayOnLinux - Tried to install few apps and every time I get some sort of variation of this:

10/11/18 12:16:38 - [POL_Wine] Message: Running wine-1.6.2 /home/callmebob/Downloads/setup_fallout2_2.1.0.18.exe POL_GoG_install (Working directory : /home/callmebob/.PlayOnLinux/tmp)
Wine cannot find the FreeType font library.  To enable Wine to
use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
or equal to 2.0.5.

However on my system:

callmebob@callmebob-XPS:~$ sudo dpkg -l | grep freetype
ii  libfreetype6:amd64                         2.8.1-2ubuntu2
ii  libfreetype6:i386                          2.8.1-2ubuntu2
ii  libfreetype6-dev:amd64                     2.8.1-2ubuntu2

I don't know much about POL, but from what I read their forum it looks to me it may be a common problem on Ubuntu 18.04. I was wondering if anybody knows how to sort this out?
