I'm running Debian squeeze and got two issues with X11 I would appreciate help with:
1. I've installed a font called ttf-bitstream-vera:
apt-get install ttf-bitstream-vera
I then ran the fc-update to the update the font cache.
Now, fc-list lists the new font:
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:style=Bold
Bitstream Vera Sans:style=Oblique
Bitstream Vera Sans:style=Roman
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:style=Oblique
Bitstream Vera Sans:style=Bold
Bitstream Vera Serif:style=Roman
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:style=Bold Oblique
Bitstream Vera Sans:style=Bold Oblique
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:style=Roman
Bitstream Vera Serif:style=Bold
but they don't show up in xlsfonts or xfontsel and some applications aren't aware of them (like Nedit). What's the problem here?.
2. The x11-common script in /etc/init.d isn't doing anything besides printing the usage message.
does nothing. Isn't this supposed to restart the X11 server?.
