Xorg fonts missing Xorg.0.log

Xorg fonts missing Xorg.0.log

This happened on a PCBSD installation but it could happen on any Unix/Linux Xorg installation:

If the text on your screen is too small and you're running at a high resolution if you do a
[code:1:04ca0d3455]cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | more
[/code:1:04ca0d3455]

You'll see a bunch of fonts missing, specifically the 75dpi and 100dpi ones that you really need :)


(WW) The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/" does not exist
(WW) The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/" does not exist
(WW) The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/" does not exist


In FreeBSD here is how I fixed it.
[code:1:04ca0d3455]
pkg_add -r xorg-fonts-75dpi
pkg_add -r xorg-fonts-100dpi
pkg_add -r xorg-fonts-type1[/code:1:04ca0d3455]

There should be similar packages for any other Unix/Linux distribution.

Oh and imagine running in 1280x1024 resolution without 75 or 100 dpi fonts! The text is impossibly small to read, real fun :) :roll:
