Re: how to check the availble font dtails in server

I can see some font sizes in this file , not sure if you are looking for the same

EDIT: /etc/X11/fs/config

# in decipoints
default-point-size = 120
default-resolutions = 75,75,100,100

Thanks

Re: how to check the availble font dtails in server

In Unix systems, there is no unified font storage standard for all purposes. There can be X11 fonts, mainly intended for display purposes, but X11 applications can often also produce printed output using X11 fonts.

An application that is designed to produce printed output might include its own system of fonts. This would be entirely specific to that application.

The file /etc/X11/fs/config mentioned by Manix contains a list of X11 font paths for the X font server daemon. From each of the listed directories, you should find a fonts.dir file that lists the full X11 font names of each font in that directory.

In HP-UX 11.23 at least, the font directories are located under /usr/lib/X11/fonts.

These commands should produce the complete list of available X11 fonts in that directory tree:

cd /usr/lib/X11/fonts
find . -name fonts.dir | xargs cat

NOTE: if you use Reflection or similar X11 server software on your workstation to connect to HP-UX server, the fonts on the HP-UX server are not used at all by default. Instead, the X11 applications use the fonts offered by Reflection on the workstation, not the fonts of the HP-UX server.
