[Issue] Lack of FreeType font family when launching Paint Tool SAI?

Happens with the Wine build made for SAI

Hello!

 

I was initiated to Linux very recently since my Windows partition blew up (I got it back, but I guess the charm of Ubuntu made me stay) and although I love it and am already getting comfortable with it, I'm an artist and Paint Tool SAI is an essential Windows painting software for me such that Krita can't replace it, so I need some help to get it running on Ubuntu. This might get long so bear with me.

 

My version of Ubuntu is Bionic Beaver (18.04.1 LTS) and the main issue is that, through the tutorials I've found scattered about the internet, PlayOnLinux can run Paint Tool SAI with two Wine builds: 2.12-staging and 1.5.5-SAI, the build made for the software. However, although PoL can launch it just fine with the first build, the program can't recognize the tablet pen pressure which is imperative for quality drawing. The build that allegedly should support pen pressure is the latter, which only seems to not launch the application at all just for me, since I couldn't find the following issue anywhere else.

 

This is the output of the debug.

[12/08/18 22:01:42] - Running wine-1.5.5-SAI sai.exe (Working directory : /home/tatsuru/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/PaintToolSAI/drive_c/Program Files/PaintToolSAI)
Wine cannot find the FreeType font library.  To enable Wine to
use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
or equal to 2.0.5.

As a newbie I can't detect if those fonts are really missing or if the problem is something ulterior to that. I've looked onto similar issues but none of the solutions there presented helped.

Any help is life-saving. Thanks in advance!
