I am attempting to install Artwiz fonts to use in creating Fluxbox themes but I'm having difficulty. There is documentation at the Fluxbox site at http://www.fluxbox.org/docbook/en/html/app-artwiz.html
which gives one approach (although I am unable to run the "mkfontdir" and "chkfontpath" commands with this method -- both come back as "command not found" even as root).
I also tried the user install (local) method from the document and couldn't get it to work. (I am testing through "xfontsel" and not seeing any of the artwiz fonts in the selection list).
There is another method in the readme file for the artwiz fonts which says:
Do the following (example for gentoo):
tar xvjf artwiz-aleczapka-<LANG>-<RELEASE>.tar.bz2
fc-cache -fv ./
Add this path to your /etc/X11/XF86Config config
and fontconfig config file (eg. /etc/fonts/local.conf)
Your installation may vary depending on your distro.
I have tried this method as follows (from a poster who installed the fonts successfully):
Make a dir /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts/artwiz and copy all the pcf files there.
chmod 644 * (or 444 *, they just all have to be world readable).
fc-cache -fv . to build the fonts.* files for that dir
Add this to your XF86config in the appropriate place:
Add this to /etc/fonts/local.conf (very important):
Now I am getting stuck at "fc-cache -fv ./". When I try to execute the command while in the /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts/artwiz subdirectory I created, I get back the message "fc-cache: command not found", even as root. (But I think I was able to successfully execute the command yesterday -- how could it change??). And I have the fonts show up in ~/.fonts.cache-1 which must be why I they are being used in my Fluxbox desktop themes. Why am I not able to see them in "xfontsel"??
What is the best way to install these fonts? It seems to be simple procedure, but I seem to be missing something.
