Hi All,

I like to know why this happened because X-windows has been
worked fine so far.

=============================================================
failed to set default font path 'unix/:-1,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc'
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
=============================================================

TIA

Edit /etc/XF86Config and remove that line or comment it and try again.  
If you are using the XFree86 which loads by default it cannot handle
True Type fonts; a separate fontserver must be started.

And quit posting FreeBSD questions to Linux newsgroups.
