other list readers like Bill or you are more experienced with
Unixities than I am. Other possible attempts:
3. xdvi ... > xdvi.log 2>&1
4. With some Unixes -- I know it from Lubuntu, may work
with Xubuntu -- you can copy text from the terminal
-- mark it by the mouse, then Ctrl-Shift-C -- and
paste it into the posting.
5. Post a screenshot of the terminal window with the xdvi run.
(Some screenshotters can take the window without the rest.)
I doubt that I can fix the problem, other readers of the
list are more experienced with fonts, especially Helvetica.
However, often they only look at the matter when a description
of the problem and material such as code or log output is
easily available from the posting.
The font may be not properly installed, or called in a wrong way.
Maybe already the TeX run .log announces problems with Helvetica.
Under Xubuntu, Evince can read .dvi as well.
Maybe something helps
