ROOT font issue

On a fresh install of ROOT with Ubuntu Software Center on Ubuntu 14.04, this error on starting root

Couldn't find font "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1",
trying "fixed". Please fix your system so helvetica can be found,
this font typically is in the rpm (or pkg equivalent) package
XFree86-[75,100]dpi-fonts or fonts-xorg-[75,100]dpi.

ROOT continues to run without problems. This issue is mentioned in this discussion, but xfs is not an available package for Ubuntu 14.04. Ignoring for now.

root -l doesn't bring up this error, nor the splash screen. Perhaps this font is used in the splash screen.
