missing charsets in fontset warning after upgrading
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading to FC5 and FE5, xemacs is giving me a warning about
missing charsets in fontset whenever it is started in a utf8 locale.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time in UTF-8 locale
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "xemacs -vanilla"
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset
This seems to break things like ediff that use a separate frame.
This was already implied, but I forgot to add that the warning doesn't
seem to occur when xemacs is run in a legacy native locale.
Also I have the following fonts installed:

Curious. I saw that warning when I was following Rawhide during the FC5 test
releases, but it just disappeared here after installing FC5 final from scratch.
Did you install from scratch or upgrade from something earlier?
My $LANG is en_US.UTF-8 and the font packages I have installed are:
Not everything seems to be ok with fonts though; non-ASCII characters such as
"Ã¤" from my surname are larger in buffers than ASCII ones.
Could you try the packages built with gcc 3.2 at
http://koti.welho.com/vskytta/xemacs/ and let me know if they make any
difference? At least they fix the non-ASCII-chars-are-bigger-than-ASCII
problem for me.
I'm afraid it is the same for me with your 21.4.19-4 package on my upgraded
Do you see the other symptoms mentioned in bug 180284: does xfontsel print the
warning too, and does xfs consume all cpu for a while when starting up
Jens, have you seen any of these issues with 21.5.x or later than FC5?
No I think this is fixed now - thanks.
