Adobe Fonts (100 dpi)
After the update to modular xorg, emacs would not load, returned error message:
"Could not find the font lucidasanstypewriter-14"
Emacs could run from a console/terminal, but not in it's own X window.
Installed xlsfonts, ran xlsfonts, and observed that the lucida fonts did not show up.
Installed xset and ran xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/100dpi and xset fp rehash. xlsfonts still showed no lucida fonts.
Checked xorg log, no complaints of missing fonts from that directory (attached to bug report below). According to http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/X11R6.9.0/doc/html/fonts2.html this font should be loaded with the "bitmap" module. This module loads fine (see log below).
Ran fc-cache, mkfontdir, mkfontscale on /usr/share/fonts/100dpi. Emacs still produces error.
Revdep-rebuild reported no libraries/programs needed to be rebuilt.
Downgraded back to Xorg version 6.8. Restarted X and ran emacs. Emacs loads fine and no errors occur. Font is visible to this X version.
How To Reproduce:
Add the following line to your .Xdefaults file:
And reload (xrdb -load ~/.Xdefaults). Then run emacs. Or specify the font from the command line with:
emacs -fn "lucidasanstypewriter-14"

Aha! I missed installing those font packages. Thankyou for the quick fix!
No problem, closing. ;)
