Recent updates have broken twm. Apparently some adobe fonts are missing that used to be there, and twm refuses to start without them. How do I install the missing adobe fonts? They must be part of some package somewhere that got either updated or removed.

Thanks! :D

Look at /var/log/emerge.log to find out which packages were removed. I guess that you need media-fonts/font-adobe-100dpi and/or media-fonts/font-adobe-75dpi.

But that's a font, not a package. What is the package containing that font, or any other adobe font for that matter?

Oops! You listed 3 packages, and I looked too quickly and thought it was one long font name. Thanks. I will try to install those tomorrow evening, which is the first chance I will get to to this.

I just installed both of those font packages and I still get:
Code:

cyrus ~ # DISPLAY=:7 twm &
[6] 4050
cyrus ~ # twm:  unable to open fontset "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*"

[6]+  Exit 1                  DISPLAY=:7 twm
cyrus ~ #

I then re-installed twm and got:
Code:

cyrus ~ # DISPLAY=:7 twm &
[6] 12508
cyrus ~ # twm:  unable to open fontset "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*"

[6]+  Exit 1                  DISPLAY=:7 twm
cyrus ~ #

So what is going on?

Did you run 'xset fp rehash', as advised in the output message of emerge?
Code:
* Installed fonts changed. Run 'xset fp rehash' if you are using non-fontconfig applications.

Still no joy:

Code:

cyrus ~ # xset fp rehash
cyrus ~ # DISPLAY=:7 twm &
[6] 28210
cyrus ~ # twm:  unable to open fontset "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*"

[6]+  Exit 1                  DISPLAY=:7 twm
cyrus ~ #

I was able to work around this problem, not fix it, by switching to ctwm instead of twm.
