what is preferred path used ? xfe or core fonts


my XF86Config-4 is in this form:

FontPath “unix/:7100"
FontPath “tcp/somepc.example.com:7100”
FontPath “/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi”
FontPath “/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi”


I believe than 2 first lines refer XFS Fonts and 2 last lines CORE Fonts.

I too believe than
FontPath “unix/:7100" (refer XFS Server Local)
FontPath “tcp/somepc.example.com:7100” (refer XFS Server Remote)

this is right?

what fonts my system go use?? one above (xfs or core) or both (xfs and core)?

explanation please.


thanks in advance!!!

Rather than trying to configure this from scratch, I'd suggest just using xf86config or a similar utility. If you have xfs (the X font server) running on your machine you can use the unix:/7100 and if you have the 75dpi and 100dpi fonts you can use those too (you can have as many FontPath elements as you like). Fonts often are stored in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts so you can check that directory or hunt around for other fonts directories on your system.

A big part of what this forum does is help users learn where and how to find the information they need.
