How to find the details of Fonts on AIX?

Hi,

Can someone help me out, how I can find the details of the Fonts installed on AIX,
details such as the font type, directory,

Non-Latin Fonts like Greek, Hebrew, or Arabic,
starting with Arabic

Objective: Oracle Reports creates PDF on AIX
we want to use ARABIC Fonts which are locally available on AIX for oracle to create the PDF reports in Hebrew / Greek / Arabic on AIX

[1] Where can I find these fonts which directory ?

Code:
applprod@cloapp:/usr/lib/X11>lslpp -l | grep  X11.fnt

Sorry for the late answer, somehow this thread escaped my notice.

The lslpp-command is your friend, as you could have found out if you read its man page:

Code:
lslpp -f <package>

Will list all files/directories provided by this package. Since you already know the package name(s) you can easily find out where they are located.

In case you have a file and want to know which package it came from:

Code:
lslpp -w /file/in/question

will tell you the packages name.

I hope this helps.
