No text in wine

I am using Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid, and when I try to run ANYTHING in wine (A Windows Compatibility layer), there is no text whatsoever. So to solve this problem I had to turn off XRender in wine. To turn off XRender you have to follow this steps.

-Create a text file called "settings.txt".
-Insert the following in the text file and save:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver]

-Then in the terminal (in the folder where you put the txt file) type:
wine regedit settings.txt.

And that was it. my wine fonts are now back to normal.
