TR : VNC with Solaris 8 F3 fonts
Fri Aug 30 17:17:00 2002
> I'm on Solaris 8, with VNC 3.3.3R2 (Solaris 2.5 bundle).
> I've a Java application that uses the standard JDK font.properties
> which references the zapfdingbats font, which is available only as a
> F3 font on my server.
> Xvnc complains if I try to include the F3 font directory in Xvnc's
> font path.
> This problem has already discussed in a previous thread, and the
> recommendation was to have the Solaris font server (fs/xfs) serve the
> F3 fonts, and include tcp/<host>:7100 in the font path of the VNC
> I did it through the xstartup script (but not the vncserver's -fp
> argument), but Xvnc coredumps when an X client (like xfd) tries to use
> an F3 font.
> Does anybody have seen and solved this problem ?
