SUN: Adding Zapf Dingbats font to GO-Global UX configuration 14 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 2
The Sun Java packages for Solaris assume the availablility of a Zapf Dingbats font that is only available when running the Solaris Console X server. To make the same font available within a GO-Global UX session, perform the following steps:

Code:

$ su root
# cd /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fnts/F3
# /usr/openwin/bin/makebdf -v -M -x -4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,14,16,18,20,22 ZapfDingbats.f3b
# mydir ~username/.zapf
# mv ./*.bdf ~myusername/.zapf
# exit
$ cd ~myusername/.zapf
$ mkfontdir



Finally, edit the icon you wish to add this to and add the path to the <tt>.zapf</tt> directory to the Prepended Font Path or the Appended Font Path options for that icon.

Technically, this renders the F3 scalable font (which the GO-Global UX server cannot render) into several point-sized BDF fonts (which the GO-Global UX server can render) and then makes those fonts available.
