nanogui: font problems
2 Mar 2006 19:30:55 +0000
maybe I do not understand the fonts systems, well I really don't
understand them, and teh GrCreateFont() function.
I am able to load .pcf.gz fonts with
font = GrCreateFont(<Full Pathname>, 1, NULL);
The font .pcf.gz came form my X fonts directory like:
And it loads fine.
But, I have beeen playing around and I try to load a .bdf and get:
fnt_createfont: /home/dufus/nano-X-src/testFontSize/luxisb.bdf,1 not found
pcf_createfont: /home/dufus/nano-X-src/testFontSize/luxisb.bdf,1 not found
But, it is there.
Also what purpose does the GR_LOGFONT serve? can .pcf fonts be resized, etc.
I have also had a problem with .pcf file created from ttf file
Like, I down load a TTF file and run it through tt2bdf and the resultant
.bdf through bdftopcf. But then when I load the pcf file, gip'ed or not,
I have discovered on thing though. Trying to under stand the X system's
font system is enough to drive anybody back to the MS Windows world.
So can anybody help me or point me to some docs that explain it all?
