No valid fontpath found
 
I installed the server version 7.10. Installed X server. Installed xinit. When I start X using startx I get the error message no valid fonthpath.* I tried sudo apt-get install fontconfig but still cannot start X using startx?? Any solutions?

Thank you

Install a *-desktop? [Ubuntu-desktop, Kubuntu-desktop,
Xubuntu-desktop...]

I don't believe that Mike would have chosen the server version if he want
to have all the desktop stuff.

Mike, I had success after installing the meta package x-window-system-core.
It depends on all packages you need for running startx.

My mistake.* I assumed a desktop was needed to use X... so if he didn't
want a desktop, he wouldn't be installing X...

I have set up an ubuntu minimal installation with a minimal X installation
for a Video Disk Recorder. The only X applications are
xineliboutput-sxfe and mms that can be found here:
http://mymediasystem.org/.

I tell this only to give you an example for a X installation without desktop.
