Can't Even Start.

Um, Just downloaded the latest version of Abiword, Looks great. This is
my first time trying it and it doesn't seem to work. When I start it up
I get:

AbiWord could not load the following font or fontset from the X Window
System display server:
[-*-Times New Roman-regular-r-*-*-*-0-*-*-*-*-*-*]

This error could be the result of an incomplete AbiSuite installation,
an incompatibility with your X Window System display server,
or a problem communicating with a remote font server.

Often this error is the result of invoking AbiWord directly instead of
its wrapper shell script. The script ...blahblahblah..

At any rate, I would be reading the online docs, however it doesn't seem
they exist on

Anyone know what's going on here?? I tried adding the AbiSuite fonts dir
to my fontpath but that didn't work.
