RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for chkfontpath (redhat section 8)

CHKFONTPATH(8)					    Red Hat, Inc.				       CHKFONTPATH(8)

NAME
chkfontpath - simple interface for adding, removing, and listing directories in the X font server's path
SYNOPSIS
chkfontpath [-lqfh] [-a name of directory to add] [-r name of directory to remove]
DESCRIPTION
chkfontpath provides a simple method of configuring the directories contained in the X font server's path. As of Red Hat 6.0, all fonts in X are served via this separate font server process, not through the main X server process. This speeds up font rendering, and also allows use of font servers which are not running on the local host. chkfontpath is mainly used by rpm in its %post and %postun sections to add and remove new directories to the server's config file at installation and de-installation time of packages containing fonts. -a, --add=name of directory to add Add a directory to the font path. -r, --remove=name of directory to remove Remove a directory from the font path. -l, --list List all directories in the font path. -q, --quiet Quiet operation; don't display any output to the screen, even when there is an error during operation. -f, --first Requires usage of the add command; puts the specified directory first in the font path, rather than last. -h, --help Show detailed help on the command line. When directories are added to the path, some sanity checking is performed to make sure you are not adding a directory without the file fonts.dir contained in it, which the server needs to be able to render fonts prop- erly. When a path is succesfully added or removed, the xfs process is restarted if it is currently running.
RETURN CODES
chkfontpath returns 0 on success, or 1 on error.
FILES
/etc/X11/fs/config Configuration file for the X font server (xfs).
