Using Artwiz lime in the DWM bar


Hi all,

I have dwm configured with statuscolors and pertag, but changing the font to lime doesn't work. It keeps falling back on the "fixed" font.

For the font line in config.h, I've tried:
static const char font[] = "-artwiz-lime-medium-r-normal--10-110-75-75-m-50-ISO8859-1";

and

static const char font[] = "-*-lime-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*";

I've redirected stderr from dwm, and it always outputs something to this effect:
PHP Code:
dwmmissing fontsetISO10646-1
dwm
missing fontsetJISX0201.1976-0
dwm
missing fontsetGB2312.1980-0
dwm
missing fontsetKSC5601.1987-0
dwm
missing fontsetJISX0208.1983-0
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-15
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-14
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-13
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-9
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-7
dwm
missing fontsetKOI8-R
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-5
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-4
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-3
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-2
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-1
dwm
missing fontsetISO8859-
I installed the font by copying it (the pcf) into /usr/share/fonts/artwiz and running fc-cache -vf. I also added to my .xinitrc the following lines:
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/artwiz
xset fp rehash

Nothing seems to be working, as it keeps falling back on "fixed".

Could anyone help me?

Thanks

the only charset you are not trying is utf-8, so try it.. maybe it will work!
