I don't have the package on my CD. Might download it. But first maybe I
should explain that I am not looking for the latest greatest whizbang gui.
I run neither kde nor gnome. I'm using wmaker. I just want to be able
easily to read menus, title bars, screen output. Until this release
I have never had trouble doing so. Anyone know how I can get back to some
simple readable fonts (don't need TrueType, etc).
Anyone know if installing xfonts-pex will help (that will have to a
download to floppy and carry home).
Secondary question. In more than one place I have read that in v4 of X,
font serving is integrated, so a font server is not necessary unless one
wishes to make fonts available off thte workstation. Anyone know why
x-window-system seems to depend on xfs, in that case ? I tried to
uninstall xfs in my attempts to solve my font pb.
