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


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
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart

fixed in x3270- and later.
