Do you get the messages like:

 medmInit: Unable to load font widgetDM_60
   Trying default (fixed) instead

when you start medm?
Then the problem you have may be solved by:

1) define environment variables like widgetDM_60 etc. (please refer the
manual for detail)

or

2) use "-displayFont scalable" argument when you start medm.
