A font collection is either a set of font files or a reference to a font server.
Reflection X Advantage provides default font collections that include fonts commonly required by X client applications.
All of the X11R7 fonts for The Open Group are available at 75 and 100 dpi (dots per inch resolution). Default font collections also include fonts for Hewlett-Packard, Digital Equipment Corporation, Sun, and IBM hosts, along with fonts for Japanese hosts and for Unicode (where supported). If clients require other fonts, you will need to add font collections that include those fonts. You can add a font collection by loading a directory of font files or by referencing an X font server.
Because it supports running in a distributed model, Reflection X Advantage cannot resolve font directory paths explicitly referenced in client application requests. Instead of using font directories, Reflection X Advantage uses font catalog names to identify font collections. To satisfy client requests that include font directory paths, use one of the following approaches:
Change the request the client sends the server, so that the font directory path is replaced with the font catalog name. For example, if you are using Xset to specify font paths, you can change the directory /usr/X11/myfonts to the catalog name myfonts, as follows:
Xset -fp /usr/X11/myfonts +fp rx/myfonts
Load the requested fonts into a new font collection, and then enter the requested font path in the /usr/X11/myfonts, and does not start unless those fonts are found, load the fonts into a new font collection and add /usr/X11/myfonts as an alternate path for the collection.box, as described below (the alternate path entry is an alias for the catalog name). For example, if an X client requests
To add a font collection
From the Administrative Console, click theside tab. The section lists all font collections currently available to you.
From X Manager, choose>
Thedialog box opens.
At the top of thelist, click the plus sign (+) and do one of the following:
Load a directory of font files into a new font collection on the domain.
Add a font collection that is a reference to a font server.
In thebox, enter the collection name as you want it to appear in the list.
In thebox, enter the collection name as you want it to be referenced by client applications.
Do one of the following:
If you chose to load a directory of font files into a font collection:
If client applications explicitly reference a font path when requesting this font, enter that font path in thebox.
Click, and then browse to a valid X11 font directory that contains the fonts that you want to load.
Once loaded, the original directory of fonts is no longer required.
If you chose to add a font collection that is a reference to a font server, in thebox, enter the fully qualified name and port of the X font server as follows:
For example, the following URL specifies to connect to the font server on the computer wilson:
If no transport is specified, tcp (the default) is assumed.
If no port is specified, 7100 (the default) is assumed.
If you are a domain administrator, you can make the font collection available to anyone who is using the domain. From thesection in the Administrative Console's Domain Definitions tab, right-click the font collection name and choose from the action menu.
