Error starting gvim


I get this error when I start gvim:

-bash-3.00$ gvim
E665: Cannot start GUI, no valid font found
Press ENTER or type command to continue

Has anyone seen this problem? Any workarounds available?


Hello eeijlar,

Could you tell us a bit more?
Which version of openSUSE you have?
Which version of gvim you have?
If you use KDE or GNOME?

Here’s a helpful link: Setting the font in the GUI - Vim Tips Wiki

Maybe you can try to rename your .gvimrc and try to start gvim.

Good luck!:wink:
