I run this:
xterm -font -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* &
Some weird box is drawn for the initial cursor
Characters typed are echoed with mostly extra wide spacing.
But command output seems normal.
This isn't limited to xterm. Emacs does the same kind of thing.
xfontsel displays the font just fine.
$ p w d
This was happening with 312 straight off the Slakware 3.0 cd, so I
tried upgrading to 312G to see if that would help.
To install 312G I just untarred all the 312*gz's under /usr/X11.
Hopefully this was appropriate. Everything was/is running fine except
for this one strange problem. This problem happens with multiple font
Any hint about this greatly appreciated. Thanks alot.
