Description earlt 1999-09-12 23:49:41 UTC
The 3270 fonts (for the X3270 terminal emulator package) are
located in the:

	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc

directory however  they are not listed in the fonts.dir file
(also located there) therefore when you use X3270 and select
a 3270 font, you get a message saying the font was not found

This is a problem in XFree86 3.3.1 and 3.3.5 as packaged in
the Redhat rpms

To resolve the problem:

cd /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc
mkfontdir
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-09-24 21:23:59 UTC
fixed in x3270-3.1.1.6-8 and later.
