Support for bit mapped fonts is not really maintained well anymore.
I would suggest that you use a scalable font.
If you want Helvetica, use the URW clone: NimbusSanL.
Or install the real Helvetica from Adobe Acrobat 3.? for Windows:
WINE should unpack it.
Or Google for the fonts:
Get the AFM files here:
and convert all the file names to lower case.
Or, install the MS fonts and use Arial:
