I'm trying to use 10x20 fonts in FC14. I installed the font package with

yum -y install xorg-x11-fonts-misc.noarch
The actual font file, along with many others, was installed at

/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/10x20.pcf.gz
However, when I run xlsfonts, they don't show. And hence I can't use them for xterms.

Why aren't these fonts showing in xlsfonts, and how can I fix that so I can use these fonts in xterms?

Thank you

I think you'll have to restart X to get them to show. You might also have to run "mkfontdir" as root in that directory.

I didn't know about mkfontdir. I ran mkfontdir and rebooted and the fonts showed in xlsfonts.

Thanks!
