On my system, Tk applications use X11 resources. As a workaround, a
line such as

*Font: -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-15-*-*-*-p-*-iso10646-1

in ~/.Xresources or ~/.Xdefaults might solve your problem for now.
Then update the X11 resource database with

xrdb merge ~/.Xresources


xrdb merge ~/.Xdefaults

or simply restart your X11 session.
