I don't know how much this is relevant to the EDM but for medm  on fedora I 
install these two packages which most likely are part of the rpmfusion 
repository.  

xorg-x11-fonts-misc
knm-new-fixed-fonts

 
Append the contents of 

$EPICS_BASE/extensions/src/medm/medm/fonts.alias.sun 

to the fonts.alias which up to Fedora 15 and most of the RedHat  based Linux 
distributions  is located in 
/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/

$cat   
$EPICS_BASE/extensions/src/medm/medm/fonts.alias.sun>>/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias

Then restart the font server 

$/etc/init.d/xfs restart
