By default, the X server uses a bunch of font paths. They are all included in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts . Of those, I am not sure which are defaulted, but
misc contains the "fixed" font alias. Sooooo.... by overriding your font path,
you are clobbering the defaulted misc. I usually set misc, 75dpi and 100dpi in
my font path...
You have two options...
1. Add the font server to the font path :
2. Add the font path AFTER the X server has started up, NOT overriding the font
path. Use xset for this. I am not completely sure of the syntax (take a look
at the manpage), but it is something like :
xset fp+ tcp/10.151.4.13:7101
xset fp rehash
