When looking for that font, I get some hits:

And those files seem to be installed by the "xfonts-base" package...

Right. I again did the first thing that I need to do as the last one.
Anyway, thanks. (BTW, shouldn't xfig depend on xfonts-base?)


Regards.

Not necessarily. Remember that xfig is an X client, and these X
fonts are installed on the X server (which might not be the same
machine, making a package dependency potentially pointless).

I cannot help you here as I'm not using the package. But maybe someone
can give you some hints on this.

I don't know the package so I can be wrong but if the program cannot be
started just because it complains for a missing font, IMO something wrong
happens here: either a) the application should not require a concrete
font for the app can be run or b) if required, the package that contains
the font should be also pulled.
