Dear Cygwin X,
I am running X Server 1.19.6-2 built 2018-03-12
I have the following error:
$ xset fp+ /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/
xset: bad font path element (#2), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax
The font directory does exist:
$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 app Domain Users 0 Mar 9 10:02 9.22
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 app Domain Users 0 Mar 9 10:02 fonts
$ xset q
Without ghostscript fonts xfig does not get the proper fonts.
The 35 core postscript fonts are now in /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35. But
I'm not sure what you have to do to make xfig find them.
I just looked at Fedora's xfig packaging
(https://src.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/xfig.git), and the two most
recent commits fix issues with the urw fonts. So maybe Cygwin's xfig
needs something similar.
