Font problem with xfig
05/03/2012 9:30
Hello, I am running etch, and I use xfig to create figures. When I call xfig from a command line I get the following error messages: marcelo@yggdrasill:~$ xfig Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Cannot convert string -*-times-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-*-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,*--16-* to type FontSet Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Cannot convert string -*-times-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-*-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-*-*-r-*--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-* to type FontSet Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Cannot convert string -*-times-bold-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-*-bold-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-*-*-r-*--16-*-*-*-*-*-*-* to type FontSet Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset and when I try to rescale text in a xfig figure, I get the following messages for example: Can't find -*-times-medium-r-normal--13-*-*-*-*-*-ISO8859-*, using 6x13 Can't find -*-times-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-ISO8859-*, using 6x13 Can't find -*-times-medium-r-normal--22-*-*-*-*-*-ISO8859-*, using 6x13 I have installed the xfonts-100dpi and xfonts-75dpi packages, but it seems that I have forgot something else. Any help will be very welcome. Regards Marcelo -- Marcelo Chiapparini chiappa@oi.com.br -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-user-REQUEST@lists.debian.org with a subject of unsubscribe. Trouble?

Thanks to Roland Rosenfeld, the Debian maintainer of xfig, who pointed me to this solution.

But at that time it didn't work because I didn't realize I had to restart the xserver before using the gs fonts...
