    Font problems in fluxbox with lucida fonts.


    When I specify a font in fluxbox like lucida-10 the fonts display correctly. If I try to be specify it like -*-lucida-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-*-*-* all I get is NullNullNullNullNullNullNull everywhere that font is used. I looked into xfontsel and there is no lucida family available to select. Here is the font section of my xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    Section "Files"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/misc:unscaled"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/Type1"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/corefonts"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/freefont"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/sharefonts"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/terminus"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/ttf-bitstream-vera"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/unifont"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/artwiz"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/local"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/cyrillic"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/urw-fonts"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/afms"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/ukr"
            FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/artwiz-aleczapka-en"
    EndSection
    This only seems to be a problem with the lucida fonts, as others will work just fine. Any ideas??

    Yes, I have recently ran into that problem as well. What's weird is that it happened randomly. I use the BlueNight theme, and everything was fine, but last night for some reason I found that the toolbar font (lucida 10 or something) was not displaying correctly. I found that other themes had this problem as well. I'm not sure what to do about this.

    edit: I emerged all my fonts again and that seems to have solved the problem. Everything works now. Weird, but I'll take it. Let me know if that helps you out.
