Emacs complains: font 'serif 10' is not defined

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am running Linux Mint 12 and trying to start emacs but keep getting this error: font 'serif 10' is not defined It seems obvious to me that I don't have the correct font. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to upgrade fontconfig to either re-validate itself and acquire the font anew or find another way to get this font. Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this font issue? (HowTos)
