Default questions about xset

Just a quick guess, but have you actually verified the path you are trying to set exists? You may need to physically copy the fonts from the CD to the machine.

Subject: questions about xset

CentOS release 5.6 (Final)


We have Mathematica 7.0 installed on our computer cluster, but are unable to
get the display to work. The initial trademark comes up, but not the rest
of the application.

mathematica &
[1] 2527
[mdoll@ted ~]$ xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax


Mathematica says that the problem is

Font Installation
All machines that display the front end must have access to the fonts
included with *Mathematica*. If the *Mathematica* process is running on a
remote machine and the front end is displayed on the local machine, the X
server on the local machine must know where to find the *Mathematica* fonts.
To do this, add the *Mathematica* fonts to the local font path by running a
command like the following on the local machine.

xset fp+ /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/8.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1; xset fp
rehash

Be sure to execute xset fp rehash to make the fonts available to the local X
server.
For optimal onscreen performance, Type1 fonts should appear before BDF fonts
in the font path. Hence,
$InstallationDirectory<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/$InstallationDirectory.html>
/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1 should appear before
$InstallationDirectory<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/$InstallationDirectory.html>
/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF. You can check the order of the font path by
executing the command xset q.

*Note:* TrueType fonts are automatically loaded and do not require an
xsetcommand.


I have tried


xset +fp
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1,/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax


xset +fp
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir

What's going wrong?

"xset q" shows

Font Path:

/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/OTF,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/,/Library/Fonts,/System/Library/Fonts

Didn't see that, but did note xset
fp+/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1,/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/BD,
with no space after the "+", so *maybe* that's it... wish the error
message was more elaborate/clear. I don't see any reason that the
author(s) of xset can't *tell* you which the error is.

Default questions about xset

xset +fp/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1xset: unknown
option +fp/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1

The space is necessary.

To remove elements from font path:
-fp path[,path...] fp- path[,path...]
To prepend or append elements to font path:
+fp path[,path...] fp+ path[,path...]

Hmm... what version RH are you running on? I was looking at a man page on
FC 15; just checked it on what we mostly run, CentOS. On both, it shows no
space, so I'm thoroughly befuddled.

Subject: questions about xset

CentOS release 5.6 (Final)


We have Mathematica 7.0 installed on our computer cluster, but are unable to
get the display to work. The initial trademark comes up, but not the rest
of the application.

mathematica&
[1] 2527
[mdoll@ted ~]$ xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax


Mathematica says that the problem is

Font Installation
All machines that display the front end must have access to the fonts
included with *Mathematica*. If the *Mathematica* process is running on a
remote machine and the front end is displayed on the local machine, the X
server on the local machine must know where to find the *Mathematica* fonts.
To do this, add the *Mathematica* fonts to the local font path by running a
command like the following on the local machine.

xset fp+ /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/8.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1; xset fp
rehash

Be sure to execute xset fp rehash to make the fonts available to the local X
server.
For optimal onscreen performance, Type1 fonts should appear before BDF fonts
in the font path. Hence,
$InstallationDirectory<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/$InstallationDirectory.html>
/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1 should appear before
$InstallationDirectory<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/$InstallationDirectory.html>
/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF. You can check the order of the font path by
executing the command xset q.

*Note:* TrueType fonts are automatically loaded and do not require an
xsetcommand.


I have tried


xset +fp
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1,/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax


xset +fp
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1
xset: bad font path element (#1149), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax

What's going wrong?

"xset q" shows

Font Path:

/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/OTF,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/,/Library/Fonts,/System/Library/Fonts


I presume when you say that it's installed on the cluster that you are
using a remote X display.


Have you installed the fonts on the client?

You either have to do that, or setup the machine on which the fonts are
installed as a font server. Then direct the local machine with the X
display to the font server.


If you login remotely, using for example ssh, and attempt to set the
fontpath when logged in remotely this will fail. Font paths refer to the
X server, not the X client. So the X server (on your desktop) has to
have access to the fonts.


For example, on my desktop I issue the following:
xset +fp fontserver:tcp/7100

to access the fonts on the host fontserver. This host is the machine on
which Mathematica is installed. On fontserver it's necessary to add the
Mathematica font directories to the font server, in my case it's an old
RHEL 4 system, and the font configuration is in /etc/X11/fs/config. I've
added the entries for Mathematica to the catalogue entry:


catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/korean,
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
...
/opt/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.2/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1,
/opt/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.2/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF,
/opt/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.2/SystemFiles/Fonts/AFM

You then need to fire up the font server, in the RHEL 4 case it's
handled by chkconfig, and the service is xfs. Finally, poke a restricted
hole for port 7100 in your firewall, if you have one, so that clients
can access the font server.


Fonts in X are fun...

Default questions about xset

As root I edited

/etc/X11/fs/config to add the lines on the head node of the cluster

/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1,
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF,
/share/apps/Mathematica7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts/AFM

I restarted xfs on the head node

service xfs restart

I checked my firewall on the head node of the computer clustrer

netstat -nlp | grep 7100
unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 9788554
5359/xfs /tmp/.font-unix/fs7100

I then logged into the head node from my Mac using "ssh -Y"

As a regular user, my xset path does not contain the Mathematica fonts.
And Mathematica still gives me the "bad font message"

My local computer is a Mac, 10.6.

I am installing Mathematica on my Mac now to see if that makes a difference
in the display.

Default questions about xset

Installing Mathematica on my mac did not help with the display from the head
node on the cluster.

I copied over the Fonts directory from the head node for Mathematica. I
installed the fonts in a /usr/local/mathematica/7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts
directory.
I then linked .fonts in my home directory to the new Fonts directory.

That did not help.

.fonts -> /usr/local/Mathematica/7.0/SystemFiles/Fonts
ls .fonts
AFM BDF SVG TTF Type1
