I'm trying to work out why Ekiga won't work on my Kubuntu/Ubuntu 
desktop.  After using the configuration druid I find that sound works 
fine from my USB based Logitech 4000 Pro webcam.  The druid detects 
everything and the video window opens in Ekiga and tries to show a 
picture.  However, what I can see is just a mid-gray colour and 
nothing else.  No picutres. Nothing there.  I have tried Xawtv and 
that says ...

$ xawtv
This is xawtv-3.95, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.17-10-386)
Warning: Cannot convert 
string "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Error: Aborting: no font found

So, that's no help either.   Can anyone suggest what to do next to 
troubleshoot the problem ?
