Fonts and XFree86
Can someone give me a hint or a pointer to info on troubleshooting fonts
under xf86? Running xf 18.104.22.168 under testing. I have only a few fonts
available: Bitstream Charter, Courier, Courier 10 pitch, three varieties
of Lucidux and Utopia.
There are 1879 files located in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi. I have 167
ttf fonts in /usr/share/fonts/truetype.
I have xfs-ttf installed and running. ps aux verifies it's there and
running on port 7110. I have unix/:7110 in my XF86Config-4 file, as
well as the direct font paths. xf's log file verifies that the font
path is being set - none of them are being dropped. freetype, type1,
speedo, etc modules are specified in XF86Config-4 and are shown as being
loaded in xf's log.
I've also installed xfstt, running on port 7101. Verified it's loading
and in the font path, etc.
I've apt-get installed msttcorefonts, and followed the procedures at
http://www.paulandlesley.org/linux/xfree4_tt.html for the non-packaged
No matter what I do, I get the same seven fonts available. Help?
