dosemu terminus fonts

After fiddling a bit with dosemu, I quickly started using xdosemu, while starting xdosemu I got the following error messages:

ERROR: X: Unable to open font "vga"ERROR: , trying "vga"...
ERROR: X: Unable to open font "vga"ERROR: , trying "9x15"...

Once DOS was started, applications which use ASCII characters above #127 weren't displayed properly. ASCII characters above #127 were commonly used to draw primitive windows in text mode.

After a lot of trial and error involving commands like mkfontdir, xset and fc-cache, no results were yielded...

Finally I decided to install the xfonts-terminus-dos package, which solved all of my issues with the click of a button!
