every char looks like some strange square symbol

What means do you use to determine whether a particular or any font exists on your system? If you can determine that it has at least one font, could you pass it to GNU Emacs as argument of the -fn switch?

With set-frame-font in .emacs you can record that, or use a way like this:

         (setq initial-frame-alist '(
(font . "-*-*-medium-r-normal--10-*-*-*-*-*-fontset- osaka")))

        (setq default-frame-alist '(
          (background-color     . "ghost white")
          (foreground-color     . "grey10")
          (cursor-color         . "purple")
          (cursor-type          . box)
          (vertical-scroll-bars . left)
          (active-alpha         . 0.875)
          (inactive-alpha       . 0.75)
(font . "-*-*-medium-r-normal--9-*-*-*-*-*-fontset- hiraginokaku")
          (top . 20) (left . 150) (width . 89) (height . 56)))



When in doubt, use brute force.
