Description Matthias Clasen 2007-08-14 21:13:13 EDT
This is a tracker bug for http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureNoMoreXFS
Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2007-10-08 16:47:03 EDT
All bugs closed, and repoquery says no further packages depend on chkfontpath, so this one's done.

I'm trying to use xemacs with the bitstream vera fonts, as I have done for many years. I've installed the fonts, and they are available to Firefox, but not to xfontsel and (hence, I think) not to xemacs. I used to use chkfontpath, but that is gone. I've read that I'm supposed to drag fonts to a font folder, possibly through Nautilus, but I cannot find that folder. It is not available through System/Preferences/Look and feel/Appearance/Fonts. This is Fedora 9 pre-release (rawhide). Possibly this is a documentation problem, but it is also possible that it has just become impossible.
Comment 3 jonathan baron 2008-05-03 13:32:13 EDT
I got xemacs working, apparently by installing xfs, going into /etc/X11/fontpath.d making a soft link ln -s /usr/share/fonts/bitstream-vera bitstream-vera then starting xfs service xfs start service xfs reload (last probably not necessary) chkconfig xfs on (to make sure it happens next time) So I guess we don't need chkconfig, but perhaps xfs should be part of the default distribution? Or documented?
