Re: Emacs Cannot find Fonts

I'm running fedora 11.

Can anyone explain why emacs won't start ?

If I do this:
$ /usr/bin/emacs
I get in response:
Font `-Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-M-70-ISO8859-1' is
not defined


However, if I then do this:
$ /usr/bin/emacs -fn
'-Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-M-70-ISO8859-1'

then emacs starts just fine.

I've reinstalled both emacs and xorg-x11-fonts-misc

Can anyone explain what's going on?

What package might I be missing?


I don't know what your problem is, but I have seen your thread in help-gnu-emacs, and the only thing I have to suggest is "use emacs 23". I was also having lots of little problems with the default emacs build for F11. Finally I gave up, and gave in to my temptation to try out emacs 23.

Just do 'yum remove emacs' and then 'yum install emacs --enablerepo=rawhide', you wont regret it. Everything is so awesome in emacs 23 ... can't rave enough.
