You need to install the fonts, then everything should work fine. We'll add some better error message for this one to make it clearer.

Today I compiled xboard-4.5.3 on Ubuntu 10.04 but on startup it exists immediately with this error:
xboard: no fonts match pattern -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

The build log and the debian/control file (which includes the build and runtime dependencies) are attached.

The package is for the Ubuntu gaming page playdeb.net
