I got a tip from a newsgroup, where I was told to issue the commands
xlsfonts -fn "-*-courier-medium-r-*"
xlsfonts -fn "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*"
And if these commands showed any promising fonts, I should put them into
the file .Xresources.
My .Xresources now looks like this:
This makes my Emacs almost usable. Although the "start up screen" still
shows only empty rectangles, other buffers are OK.
(Issue a "xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources" after editing .Xresources.)
