Xterm cannot load font

Tue Jul 16, 2013 6:34 pm

I'm trying to get youtube play videos through omxplayer, but each time it's about to start it immedeatly closes and my terminal sais:
xterm: cannot load font '-misc-fixed-medium-r-semiconducted--13-120-75-75-c-60-i-so10646-1'
I've been scouring through the internets looking for the answer, trying different solutions but none of them has worked (do keep in mind im a total linux noob). Anyone here know the solution?

What is IT ? ( I dont think its omxplayer )
IT tries to open xterm for some reason, which really shouldnt be necessary for playing any youtube-videos.
if IT is a script it can probably be changed to open a different terminal (like lxterminal for example) or to try a different font.
