In addition to the font problems, I have other issues with x applications.
(1) Reverse video not working.
"xclock -rv" draws the clock in black on a black background. Not very useful.
Not sure if this is X server's fault or the program's fault. Run remotely on a different X server, xclock -rv has white hands but black ticks.
Warning: Cannot convert string "flagup" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "flagdown" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "xlogo32" to type Pixmap
Again, this is not a huge deal, but I need the confidence that I have an installation with working X.
