Ubuntu: a font of annoyance
I have a Linux box running Xubuntu 8.04, and I've been playing around with getting X working on it. But I'm having a font problem.
There is a font that I want to use for my xterm sessions: vga11x19. It comes with dosemu, and I've gone ahead and installed that package. The fonts live in /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/dosemu/
. Including vga11x19.pcf.gz
, which is the one I want to use.
My problem is, I can't seem to make the font system notice it.~> xterm +cm -ms white -bg black -fg gray -fn vga11x19
xterm: unable to open font "vga11x19", trying "fixed"....
The vga11x19 font shows up in /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/dosemu/fonts.alias
But I can't figure out how to make it so that I can call an xterm with it from the Cygwin xterm session from which I'm ssh'ing in. I've tried mkfontdir
but nothing seems to do the trick.
What should I do?
