Re: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion

As I mentioned before, I'd seen references to those fonts but wasn't sure it
would actually help me. I just installed them and, sure enough, there's still
some (fewer?) missing charsets.
The delay dropped to only 2-3 seconds now though, so I guess that helps. Is
there a way to diagnose which fonts/charsets are still missing?
You could write a small test application which calls XCreateFontSet() with the
base font of "*" and reports the list of missing charsets returned.
It also seems that twm reports these problems in a slightly more useful
fashion than libXt (saying "font for charset <charset> is lacking"), so
running that (against an X server not started in multiwindow mode) might serve
just as well.
