    Cool X windows problems

    My server runs Fedora 9 with X windows (the best thing to me, a Windows Pro!). However, the X program failed to load with an error message that it "can't load a certain font". After that it goes back to the command prompt. How do I correct this situation?

    Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and look for the section where your fonts are defined, and comment out the offending line

    The font section from my FC5 box:

    Section "Files"
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, a font server independent of the X server is
    # used to render fonts.
            FontPath     "unix/:7100"
