Titel: Dist-Upgrade of 2005-04 Problem / Font Problem Solved  BeitragVerfasst am: 17.05.2006, 07:29 Uhr

I wasn't going to post this until another person had the same problem in the irc so hopefully this helps others. I ran a dist-upgrade and afterwords gdm (other person ran kdm) and X would not load. After looking at the error logs I realized it was a problem with fonts not being found. I tried running the fix-xorg7.sh script (which ran fine on my other computer) and it wanted to remove alot of vital programs such as: amarok, gdm, kopete, gtk, etc. (Yes, I know it's not supposed too, but I restored and tried 3 different times and it was the same result). So I manually redid the symbolic links of: 100dpi, 75dpi, encodings, & Type1, from directory /usr/lib/X11/fonts/ to /usr/share/fonts/X11/ . And presto, everything works perfectly again. Hope this helps Sehr glücklich

Cheers,
Mike

Great!

Would be nice if somebody could confirm that's the way we should do it, because everybody has the problem with missing directories when doing fix-fonts.

Could you please adjust the title of this thread so that it can be seen it's about missing font-directories or fix-fonts, so everybody can see what the thread is about and you found a solution.

Thanks
hubi

hubi,
if fix-xorg dont do it, the way Mike did it, is ok. You could set a symlink as well.

When you've fixed it, could you please add the script you used here. I already appear to have all 75dpi and 100dpi fonts in /usr/share/fonts/x11/etc but still get the error.

You don't need a script, just add a symbolic link for those directories in you /usr/lib/X11/fonts.

# su
# cd /usr/lib/X11/fonts
# ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi 100dpi
# ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi 75dpi
# ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11/encodings encodings
# ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1 Type1

after that, your errors should be gone and if you had the dist-upgrade problem, you should now be able to enter X. Sehr glücklich

Cheers,
Mike

Question to all!

Just an idea, but I am an illiterate at this question:

/usr/lib/X11/fonts is a symlink itself and points to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts.

Question:
should /usr/lib/X11/fonts not point to /usr/share/fonts where all my fonts are and not to the "old" target? Looks to me like a change from Xorg6 to Xorg7. But I am not sure if I am right.

In my setup /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts has the same symbolic links in it as I told you to put in /usr/lib/X11/fonts. So both directories should point to /user/share/fonts/X11/ with the directory names I listed above. Does that anwser your question?

Cheers,
Mike

Great! That's the answer. My /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts was no symlink, the fonts were in there. So linking to /user/share/fonts/X11/ is the answer I was looking for.

Last puzzle solved, thanks
