ddd font problem


First, let me say if this is the wrong group for this posting, please
let me know of a better newsgroup.  I figured developers would be more
familiar with using ddd, and thus why I posted here.

We cannot change the font size for the Data Display window.  We can
change the Default Font, the Variable Width font and the Fixed Width
font, but not the Data font.  The Default Font and the Variable Width
font are helvetica-medium and the Fixed Width font and the Data font
are lucidatypewriter-medium.  We tried to change the font through the
Data font selector and the ~/.ddd/init file.  The font specified in
the ~/.ddd/init file is displayed in the DDD preferences (Fonts)
dialog box, but still displays the same fixed font for the Data

We built ddd version 3.3.9 on one of our development boxes (SuSE Linux
on S/390, version 8.1).  Note that we get the following errors when we
start ddd up:

Warning: Could not load font "(Disabled)", using font "fixed" instead
Warning: Could not load font "...", using font "fixed" instead
Warning: Could not load font "[...]", using font "fixed" instead
Warning: Could not load font "[]", using font "fixed" instead

Warning: Could not load font "a", using font "fixed" instead
Warning: Could not load font "3", using font "fixed" instead
Warning: Could not load font "123", using font "fixed" instead

The ddd program works fine on my Linux box at home (running Fedora
Core 1).  I even compiled the 3.3.9 version on my Fedora Linux box and
again no problems.  So, given the warnings that spew out, I figure
this is a font problem on the SuSE Linux box.

Any help would be appreciated as I have been looking into this for
over a week.

As Steve Balmer correctly stated, while making his monkey dance, it is applications and hence programmers that make a platform. The fact though is that if you want to do professional programming, then Linux is the platform for you.

I am currently working for a Windows only house producing a system that receives and transmits around 1000 telegrams per second in each direction on a UDP socket, translates them into a different format and creates a log entry for each ...

Sharp APL for Unix 6.11 APL fonts problem
I had installed SAX for Unix on Redhat 9. After I fired up /usr/sax/rel/bin/saxlite, I got new xterm with a nice clear ws. The problem is it cannot display APL chars using the Alt key, only the interactive session works. For example when I type {Alt + i 3 Enter}, the echo is only a solid block (instead of the apl char) and the number 3, then it returns the array (1 2 3) on the next line. I use the SAXinstall.611 script to install, it installed the fonts in the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc. I followed the SAX FAQ for Linux regard to this font issue, even reboot, but with no luck t...

Font problem (TTF2f / Unicode fonts)
Iyonix, RO5.08, standard Font directory with only SansMono and OCRB fonts added. I am trying to get NetSurf to use the unicode fonts, but I am having difficulties. I've converted the Bitstream CyberBit, Code2000 and Arial Unicode MS fonts with TTF2f to RISC OS format. Used base 99, 98 and 97 for them. I copied the /Base<n> files to a directory '!Font.Encodings' (didn't exist, so had to create that one). I read on the NetSurf list that I had to do something to the Messages1 file, so I added BEncoding_Base97:* there. Not sure if this is needed only for the MS font, or al...

Urgent problem with font sizes in latex: signature page fonts, chapter page chapter name font

Font embedding problem: coded font names?

Converting the PDF file to a Postscript (.ps) file and examining this with a text editor shows that all of the dozen or so font names appearing in the file have been renamed from standard TeX names cmr10, cmmi10, etc., to the form "ABCXYZ+CMR10", etc, where "A...

Problem with fonts
I've a strange problem with fonts: I can't get any other than the default fonts to work (which are a bit tiny to me), although I played around with the settings in ~/.wine/config. I changed the value of Resolution and tried to use others than the Default-Fonts (even installed the native Windows-Fonts, as described in the Wine User Guide, Chapter 5.10). The fonts are visible to X, and even wine does see them, but it always displays the same tiny font. I use the latest wine (20040121) under Debian unstable. As the output of wine --debugmsg +font is very large, I did not in...

fonts problem
I think that although JBuilder8 is a reasonable good program, its fonts are a joke. The choices given are limited and are very similar. You see, I have weak eyesight and cannot differentiate the small case l and the number 1 in JBuilders editor. They are indistinguishable.(unlike the font here). So I hope some one in this newsgroup can let me know how to introduce or import new fonts to JBuilder8. I believe Windows itself has a large collection of fonts from which I can choose one that suits me. By the way I tried to access Borland's newsgroups at their website but has been unsuccessful ...
