Pinned topic Font rendering problem with iSeriesAccess and Ubuntu Lucid desktop

‏2010-09-24T16:39:18Z |
Hi,
I'm using iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6 in a i386 environment (Ubuntu Desktop Lucid 10.04.1).
I have a problem with font rendering: they are too much tight vertically in 132 columns mode (so I have two big black unused zone above and under text).
I've installed TTF fonts (also Microsoft fonts) but I can't choose/try another fonts to use.
I've enabled DEBUG logging and I've noticed the following error (I found, looking around, that this is a common error...):

http://...
5250: DEBUG : isFontAvailable:0 -jdk-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-24-*-*-*-m-*
5250: DEBUG : isFontAvailable:0 -b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-24-175-*-*-m-120-iso8859-*

** If you want to use scaleable fonts, check the font FAQ and edit **
** /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/fs/config file. **

I've attached the full log.

How can I force using my favourite TrueType font?
Thanks for any help,
Carlo

    Hi Carlo,

    what screen size are you using? Is your session running maximized on the session window? I'll have a look and see if I can work out the issue.

    Hi Partridge,
    I tested many screen size (4:3 and also 16:9 - 16:10).
    What do you mean asking if the session run maximized?

    I think the problem is in the font rendering sub-system; you can test it in a fresh installed Ubuntu (32 oe 64 bit, is the same) distro.

    Thanks,
    Carlo
