Re: font server

You can check out it using "fsinfo" command at your Linux.

# fsinfo -server :7100

If it doesn't respond, you can enable it by:

1. comment out "no-listen = tcp" at the /etc/X11/fs/config file.
2. run "xfs" command as a root.

# xfs &

It's not fsinfo, it's "xfsinfo" for Linux :)

Also a good way installing fonts can be just copying the dir
from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts, then running gunzip on each file in the COPIED dir, like this:

for f in `ls *.gz`; do gunzip $f; done

Then editing the fonts.dir file, and replacing each line there containing gziped file with the gunziped name, like this:

crox1c.pcf.gz --> crox1c.pcf

Then just copy this dir to your Xmanager1.3.9/Fonts dir, run: Xconfig --> Font --> Add Directory and choose "fonts.dir" file.

And you'll be set :)
