    Hello,

    we’re running NoMachine 7.8.2 on a Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.9 server. Client is also NoMachine 7.8.2 running as well on RHEL7.9 or on Windows 10. Desktop used is KDE.

    By running “xset q” the currently set X font path in the NoMachine session (virtual desktop) is displayed as

    Font Path:
    /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/,/usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/,built-ins

    Now the user applications expect some dedicated fonts, i.e. the following X font path is expected

    Font Path:

    xset fp catalogue:/etc/X11/fontpath.d,built-ins

     

    Question: How can I configure NoMachine to set the X font path by default to catalogue:/etc/X11/fontpath.d?

    After login into the NoMachine user session the user can set the right path with “xset fp catalogue:/etc/X11/fontpath.d,built-ins”, but this is inconvenient as it is every time a manual action. I.e. if the X server would be started with the right font path automatically would be the perfect solution.

    Thanks & best regards,

    Ruediger

    The option DisplayServerExtraOptions accepts X server options, so set the font path using DisplayServerExtraOptions “-fp string”.
