Description of problem:

I am using Fedora 9 on a Lenovo T43P Thinkpad.  After I boot and log in, I normally start emacs by clicking on a button on the panel.  When I do this, it fails to start.  In my .xsession-errors file I see this:

Window manager warning: xserver doesn't have 'fixed' font.
No such XIM server is running: SCIM
Font `-Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-M-70-ISO8859-1' is not defined

This is repeatable.  When I see it, I run "sudo /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart".  This fixes the problem, and emacs then starts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Reboot computer, start emacs.

Put that xfs out of misery and stop it (via chkconfig or remove the package altogether). Check that your xorg.conf (if you have one) doesn't contain any FontPath and check in /var/log/Xorg.0.log that it says something like:

(==) No FontPath specified.  Using compiled-in default.
(==) FontPath set to:

Then restart Xorg (relogin). Does it help?

Seems to work fine after your suggested changes.

Thanks a lot!

I assume this was some problem in the upgrade process.
