Found this online:


Was able to make gvim work here by doing the following:

cp /usr/local/share/vim/vim72/gvimrc_example.vim /home/<user>/.gvimrc

Then edit .gvimrc, and un-comment the first line about x-font:

" set the X11 font to use
set guifont=-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-130-75-75-c-70-iso8859-1

Save, and start gvim again, seems to work OK now :)
