After installing Solaris 2.5, the X server now fails to render all of the
extra Type-1 fonts I have installed. They are recognized correctly (ie:
xlsfonts lists them), but when they are rendered they are all drawn as a
simple courier like font. Similarly, Photoshop (3.0) now ignores them.
The font files are not corrupted, because GhostScript still renders them
correctly, as does my DEC 3000's X server and the X11R5 X server I run on a
very old machine. The exact same setup worked correctly on Solaris 2.3 & 2.4.
Has the Sun X server's support for Type-1 fonts changed in Solaris 2.5 ??
Perhaps the fonts now need to be pre-processed or something? I saw that a new
directory called "prebuilt" exists in /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/Type1 in
Any help would be appreciated...
Imagine that CRAY decides to make a personal computer. It contains 16
`Alpha' based processors executing in parallel, has 800 megabytes of RAM,
9 Gigabytes of disk storage, a resolution of 4096 x 4096 pixels, does
24bit 3D graphics in realtime, relies entirely on voice recognition for
input, fits in your shirt pocket and costs $300. What is the first
question the computer community asks?
"Is it DOS compatible?"
