Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using fedora core 1 and am having trouble setting up vnc with truetype fonts. I have set up the font server to listen to TCP connections (it was disabled by default). The vncserver script too has been modified to include truetype fonts. Specifically i added the string "-fp tcp/localhost:7100,/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/" to the Xvnc command line in the script. Running xfsinfo -server tcp/localhost:7100 gives the following info
name of server: tcp/localhost:7100
version number: 2
vendor string: The XFree86 Project (experimental version)
vendor release number: 6600
maximum request size: 8192 longwords (32768 bytes)
number of catalogues: 1
Number of alternate servers: 0
number of extensions: 0
Observing the log for the vnc file there is no error to indicate that Xvnc is not able to set the font path. Running xset fp+ tcp/localhost:7100 inside vnc has no effect. I tried to see the fonts using xfontsel program but it didn't show any new fonts even after running xset. I am really stumped and a little bit frustrated. Could somebody please help me out????. Running fslsfonts -server tcp/localhost:7100 gives a list of fonts. The vncserver and Xvnc programs are from the distro. I seem to have taken care of all the issues but something is going wrong.
