hi,
    
with linux 12.04 flavor of Ubuntu. I try ./rebol and get:
    
** User Error: Bad face in screen pane!
** Near: size-text self

If you're trying Rebol/View, you can try:
    
rebol -iv
    
The options are explained if you run as:
    
rebol -?

You have to install these two fonts:
    
xfonts-100dpi
xfonts-75dpi
    
Then it should work.

I use this, in the user.r file think it was written by Cyphre:
    
set-default-font: func [
     "sets default font for /View"
     font-blk [block! word!] "block of font attributes"
     ][
     system/standard/face/font: make system/standard/face/font font-blk
     system/view/vid/vid-face/font: make system/view/vid/vid-face/font font-blk
     foreach [w s] system/view/vid/vid-styles [s/font: make s/font font-blk]
]
    
set-default-font [
     name: "DejaVu Sans" ;"tahoma"
     style: none
     size: 12
     color: brown
     offset: 2x2
     space: 0x0
     align: 'left
     valign: 'center
     shadow: none
]
    
and then paste the set-default-font block at the top of your script for script specific font
