Facename fonts vs XLFD fonts
Tue Sep 6 12:45:00 GMT 2005
I have an application that by default looks for the Facename font
ncenb14. I can over ride the setting by using the Xdefaults and
specifying the XLFD (X Logical Font Description) instead. While this
works, it's not the ideal situation. I would rather it just found the
Facename name by default. This application's fonts work fine when you
run it from a Linux or HP console, but not when forwarded back to Cygwin.
I tested with xterm to make sure that it could find the font name. When
I used the -fn switch it wouldn't find the xcenb14 font, but when I used
the -fa it would. Is there a way to make Cygwin look at the Facename
and the XLFD?
I tried finding some documentation on how X uses fonts and searches for
them but really couldn't find much. If anyone has some really good
references, let me know also.
