Re: questions about xset



On my Mac
mkfontdir .fonts

ls -sal .fonts

xset +fp .fonts

Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax

This is the same problem that I have on the head node:


ls -sal /share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts

[root@ted Fonts]# xset +fp /share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir

Although xfs is running on the head node:
xfs 5359 1 0 Oct25 ? 00:00:00 xfs -droppriv -daemon

It was not running on the mac. I started the process on the mac and tried
the xset again.

sudo /usr/X11/bin/xfs &
[1] 7770
gc166-mad:~ mad$ xset +fp .fonts/BDF
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax

As root I edited

/etc/X11/fs/config to add the lines on the head node of the cluster

I restarted xfs on the head node

service xfs restart

I checked my firewall on the head node of the computer clustrer

netstat -nlp | grep 7100
unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 9788554
5359/xfs /tmp/.font-unix/fs7100

I then logged into the head node from my Mac using "ssh -Y"

As a regular user, my xset path does not contain the Mathematica fonts.
And Mathematica still gives me the "bad font message"

My local computer is a Mac, 10.6.


After doing that did you add the font server to the font path on your Mac?
If you don't then your X server doesn't know anything about the font server
you've just set up.
