R X11 fonts problem on Ubuntu

Forrest Sheng Bao < http://forrest.bao.googlepages.com >

I installed R via apt-get on Ubuntu 6.10. But when I want to plot something, I got the error like this:

forrest@flavia:~$ R
> x<-rnorm(50) > y<-rnorm(50) > plot(x, y)
Error in X11() : could not find any X11 fonts
Check that the Font Path is correct.

After a few minutes of Googling, I found that it is because my default font is UTF8 of US. If I set another font, it will be ok. So you can start R like this
$ LANG=C R
