Question XView and SuSE 9.2. (Xserver problem?)


I have installed xview-devel-3.2p1.4-706 from the SuSE 9.2 Pro DVD to be able to compile a system using XView. That system was previously compiled and running on Red Hat 7.2. Now it complies without errors on SuSE 9.2, but when I try to run the programs no windows appear and I get the following errors:

Cannot load font '-b&h-lucida-medium-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*'

Cannot load font '-b&h-lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*'

Cannot open connection to window server: :0.0

What should I do to fix it? Is there some settings (for the fonts?) that needs to be changed?

My guess is that it has some to do with the XServer and that this is the symptom of it.

Please help me if someone have any idea!

I'm getting similar error messages when running testing java apps fron jDeveloper.

Closest advice which I still cant work out is at Sun guide to adding fonts .

Had a look a files mentioned and quite honestly am rather hacked off as I have only had this problem after upgrade from Suse 9.1 to 9.2

Problem solved! (for me at least)

SuSE 9.2 didn't have the latin-1 (8859-1) versions of the lucida fonts, only the unicode versions! And because of that xview matched the lucida names to the unicode fonts, but couldn't load them since unicode have two bytes per character.

I couldn't find those latin-1 versions among the supplied fonts on the DVD, but I took all (69, I think) lucida latin-1 fonts from Red Hat 7.2 and installed them through the Font installer in SuSE. Probably the fonts exists on SuSE 9.1 also if xview worked there.

And now the programs with xview works!!

Thanks for that, I suspect my prob is the same so giving it a go.

I've still got a mirror of the 9.1 site so I'll grab those fonts

For those out there who have suse 9.2, download from an ftp the xfree86-fonts-100dpi-4.3.99XX.rpm and xfree86-fonts-75dpi-4.3.99XX.rpm
install them by
rpm -ivh xfree86-fonts* --nodeps

and send to hell the x.org fonts
