Re: f11 - missing font?

Some of the xscreensaver hacks seem to be looking for font(s) that aren't

memscroller: unable to load font: "-*-courier-bold-r-*-*-*-960-*-*-m-*-*-*"
memscroller: unable to load font: "-*-courier-bold-r-*-*-*-1440-*-*-m-*-*-*"

This is a new set-up-from-scratch F11 machine, not one that was upgraded from a
previous version.

What's missing?

Frank, same problem as xawtv, the rpm is broken and doesn't have a dependency for a required font. I think I reported this against either F10 or an early F11-pre or rawhide.

I got a response in chat that this is not a bug, fixing it would force people to use some font rather than pick your own. Of course that means you get to waste hours trying to find *any* font which will work.

I have these installed, xawtv still doesn't work for me:
  Oops, will get munged, attached instead.
