Modify the Server Font Path List

When an X client application requests a font, the X server searches for it in the font collections in its Server Font Path list. These font collections are searched in the order in which they appear in the list.

You can improve session performance by changing the order of the font collections in the list, or by removing unnecessary font collections from the list.

Note: To modify the X server font path list of a public definition, you must own the definition. If you are not the definition owner, you can clone the session definition, and then modify the new session definition.

To modify the Server Font Path list

  1. Start X Manager or the Administrative Console.
  2. (Administrative Console only) Click the Domain Definitions tab.
  3. In the left pane, select a session.
  4. Click the Fonts tab.
  5. To change the order in which a font appears in the Server Font Path list, select the font and click the up or down arrows at the top of the list. To add or remove a font collection to or from the Server Font Path list, use the arrows to the right of the list.
