Problem starting Winterm on IRIX

Last modified: Friday, September 4, 2009 12:13 AM

When you are starting Winterm on IRIX by using Xstart via SSH, Winterm fails to start.


This problem occurs when Xmanager does not have the font required to run Windterm.

To resolve this problem, you can use one of the following solutions:
  1. Use the Allocate a pseudo terminal before executing the command option on Xstart. This option is located under the Options tab of SSH protocol setup.
  2. Use the -fn fixed option when starting Winterm.

    Ex) /usr/sbin/winterm -fn fixed
