Oracle Linux - installing WebLogic font error

When installing Oracle WebLogic server on Oracle Linux 7 one would expect an easy installation without any issues along the way. However, for some reason you might run into a strange error which is not that clear in the beginning on what the root cause might be. Installing the combination of Weblogic Server on A Oracle Linux 4.1.12-61.1.28.el7uek.x86_64 machine in combiantion with Java 9.0.4 caused the below strange issue as soon as the universal installer was about to start:

After some research it became clear that the issue is being caused by something as simple as missing fonts. In case you do encounter this issue the solution is to create a file /etc/fonts/local.conf and ensure the below content is in the file.

This should ensure your installer is working fine.
