Re: Debian/Testing: x-window-system-core broken/missing fonts.alias?




# update-fonts-dir misc Type1 100dpi 75dpi

I tried it, it didn't work. I think you suggestion is valid though, but it appears that there's a problem with the way the x-window-system-core package is intalled on my system.

AFAIK, "update-fonts-dir misc Type1 100dpi 75dpi" will build fonts.alias files from the "/etc/X11/fonts/.../*.alias" files, e.g. "/etc/X11/fonts/100dpi/xfonts-100dpi.alias". The problem is I do not have ANY of
the "/etc/X11/fonts/.../*.alias" files on my system.

It looks like dpkg says during installation that "conffile extracted" but it's not there. Ran "fsck", just to be sure, the file system is clean. Strange.

Thanks for any clues

I am grasping at straws now, but you could try (as root)

update-fonts-dir misc Type1 100dpi 75dpi

Then try the update-font-aliases command again:

update-fonts-alias misc Type1 100dpi 75dpi

(Note: Do not specify the full paths to the font directories for these
two commands; see also their manpages.)
