[R] Some problems with X11

I am really new with R, so I don't know anything about it. I have 
written a script (attached) which tries to do really basic stuff (such 
as computing basic statistics and basic plots). When I try to plot a 
histogram and pairs, for example, I get the following message:

 > source("project.R")
Loading required package: sp

Analysis of geostatistical data
For an Introduction to geoR go to http://www.est.ufpr.br/geoR
geoR version 1.6-13 (built on 2006/12/26) is now loaded

Error in title(main = main, sub = sub, xlab = xlab, ylab = ylab, ...) :
         X11 font at size 8 could not be loaded

I have seen some threads about this problem, though none of them really 
states what should be done in order to solve that problem (At least it 
was not clear for me!).

This is the R version I have:
 > version
platform       i486-pc-linux-gnu
arch           i486
os             linux-gnu
system         i486, linux-gnu
major          2
minor          4.1
year           2006
month          12
day            18
svn rev        40228
language       R
version.string R version 2.4.1 (2006-12-18)

I am also running R on a Ubuntu Linux Edgy distro. The interesting thing 
is that I have this problem on my desktop only. I also have Ubuntu Edgy 
installed on my laptop and it is working just fine!

Thank you
