Hi all,

I think I may be missing something as big as an an "elephant" here.

I generated a the file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-fonts
Code:
Section "Files"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/consolefonts/"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi/"
...
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/terminus/"
...
EndSection


but when I run xfontsel (as root or user) those fonts ae not available. However, if I do
Code:
xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/terminus/
xset fp rehash

everything works.

I am aware that I can "xset" in .xinitrc, but why isnt 10-fonts isnt workng?
Or, is there a particular reason for not setting fonts up in "xorg.conf.d/" ?

Thanks!

Efo

Did you run mkfontdir in all the necessary places?

Hi Ant P.,

thank you for the reply.

I ran mkfontdir in usr/share/fonts/ as well as in usr/share/fonts/terminus/, I have "fonts.dir" and "fonts.scale" in both directories, and in the terminus one I also have "encodings.dir"

Just to get the obvious thing out of the way: have you made sure the file ends in ".conf"?
