Description Jeremy Katz 2005-11-15 03:52:18 UTC
Having /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled in /etc/X11/fs/config makes it so that
the fonts don't get picked up by the server making 'fixed' unavailable. 
Dropping :unscaled from the specification and restarting xfs seems to fix things.

This is also a problem when specifying fonts directly in the config file without
using xfs

lib/font/fontdir/Imakefile defines -DFONTDIRATTRIB unconditionally.  modular
does not define it ever.  pretty brilliant.

fixed in HEAD by deifdefing the font attrib code.
