Keyboard problem, Xdenu

Post by Magnus Bor » Sat, 15 Mar 1997 04:00:00

Hello There!

I'm having strange keyboard problems when running X and Xdenu as an
xterminal against my "Real" Linux Box. The meta/alt key stops working in
all x sessions on the Xdenu box, athough it works fine on the other
machine and out of x on the xdenu. Xev seems to see the alt key as meta,
so it's unfortunately not that...
Facts: Xdenu ver 2.1.2 with X 3.1.2. Linux box: Kernel 2.0.29, X 3.2

1. Xdenu Problem with X server

I hope someone can help me with this problem.  I am trying to set up the
Xdenu Linux version.  Everything works great, except for X Windows.  I
just can't get it configured to run properly.  The documentation has been
no help to me, and I can't find a FAQ or any other doc that deals with

The specific error message I get after running startx is:

failed to set default font path

fatal server error
could not open default font 'fixed'
because FontPath is invalid

Are there any Xdenu users out there that can point me to a FAQ or give me
some step-by-step instructions on setting up the X server?
