Hi there,

since upgrading to X-4.0.1 from I haven't been able to get
abiword running anymore. I debugged the problem down to being a font
problem. Here's what I get when the script tries to add abi-fonts to the

$ xset fp+ /usr/local/AbiSuite/fonts/
X Error of failed request: 86
  Major opcode of failed request: 51 (X_SetFontPath)
  Serial number of failed request: 9
  Current serial number in output stream: 11

I also tried running 'mkfontdir' in the fonts/ directory, but that didn't
help either. It just created an empty fonts.dir file.

Is this a problem I should be talking about on the xfree-forums instead?

Thank you for all help in this matter.
