Follow-up Comment #12, bug #49044 (project octave):

The important point is not whether the system has the Helvetica font--most
systems won't--but that the system knows how to map the name "Helvetica" to a
real font that does exist on the system.

For Linux platforms, "Sans" appears to be a name that can always be mapped to
a real font.  But Windows doesn't always accept that, according to the reports
from Avinoam and my own experience with a Windows XP virtual machine.


set (0, "DefaultAxesFontName", "Sans")
graphics_toolkit gnuplot
demo ezmesh 1

For me, that issues about 8 warnings of

Warning:  font "Sans:Bold" not available, trying "Arial" instead.

There are no such warnings if I use "Helvetica" for the default font.
