The CERN X Font Service allows the users of any machine with an X11R5 X server (UNIX and non-UNIX workstations, X terminals, PCs with an X emulation...) to use many fonts without having to install them on the local machine.
To use this service:
xset fp+ tcp/xtsoft1:7100
(you can add this line to your .xsession if needed).
Note that the HEPiX Xsession scripts and the X terminal configuration on the central servers do this for you automatically.
For more information you can read:
In order to avoid conflicts with AFS and to comply with HEP standards, the CERN Font Service will now use different port numbers. You should now use:
|7111||miscellaneous fonts, currently only 3270|
|7112||fonts provided by NCD, this includes: X11R5,|
|DEC compatible, Sun compatible and scalable fonts|
|7113||fonts usually found on an HP 700 workstation|
|7114||fonts usually found on an IBM RS/6000 workstation|
|7100||almost all the fonts above!|
|7121||National Character Sets: Hebrew, Greek...|
The old port numbers (7000 to 7014) will still be valid until the end of the year.
Note: this change should be transparent to most users. You only need to change something if you are explicitely using a font server in your scripts or login files (like .xsession ).
