[quote="ryzhinskiy"]When I use, for instance, iso8859-5 coding instead iso8859-1 the following message appears:
Warning in <TGClient::GetFontByName>: couldn't retrieve font -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-5, using "fixed"
What proper font name should I write in the $ROOTSYS/etc/system.rootrc file? :?[/quote]
Check man xfs - that's the server translating the font names into actual fonts. It tells you where the config file resides (usually /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config), and that file tells you what dirs are checked when looking for fonts. I have /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/ in there, and that contains the true type font files. In that dir, there are two text file named fonts.dir and fonts.alias. They contain the "translations" between font names like "Sans-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-4" to a font file name, say "luxisr.ttf". Make sure that you have fonts with "iso8859-5" support in this TTF directory. If you don't have such a font, get one e.g. from http://www.slovo.info/unifonts.htm. At the bottom of that page you'll find info on how to install them under linux / unix.
