bug#7956: 24.0.50; xft:-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal-normal-normal-Sans-1

Subject: bug#7956: 24.0.50; xft:-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal-normal-normal-Sans-10-*-*-*-m-60-iso10646-1 rendered to presumingly 1 pt

The behaviour does not seem to be caused by any setting in my init file. Or the system's. The former I proved my saving my .emacs file under a different name and by 'touch ~/.emacs', creating an empty init file. The latter I proved by simply saving site-start.el under a different name.

GNU Emacs then shows a welcome message with GNU Emacs logo, a few hyper-links to documentation, and below a red text on the left side the start of the fringe – which is already distorted. The mode-line also does not show legible text. See the attached screen shot.

So it could be – must be – an X resource! By starting with an empty ~/.Xresources file (~/.Xdefaults is not read!) the effect becomes visible with this X resource:

Emacs.font: -*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-10-100-75-75- m-60-iso10646-1

Changing the encoding iso8859-1 makes no change, xfd and xterm display/ use the fonts. No problems come from:

-*-courier 10 pitch-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 (C-u C-x = names xft:-bitstream-Courier 10 Pitch-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*- m-0-iso10646-1) -*-courier new-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 (C-u C-x = names xft:-monotype-Courier New-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-0- iso10646-1) -*-luxi mono-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 (C-u C-x = names xft:-b&h-Luxi Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1) -*-dejavu sans mono-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 (C-u C-x = names xft:-unknown-DejaVu Sans Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*- m-0-iso10646-1)

The font -*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 (C-u C-x = names xft:-Adobe-Courier-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-60- iso10646-1) behaves like Lucida Sans Typewriter.

No problems seem to come from using fontconfig names.



It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
