Missing Fonts in CLIM

    From:     Bernd Bachmann <>

    Whenever I start a CLIM application the debugger returns with the

    Error: The FONTS:<fontname> could not be found for the device 1-bit
    STATIC-GRAY X Screen INTERNET|<internet-number> with 0 Genera fonts
    (MIT X Consortium R4)

    in the function SI:GET-FONT

    However, the "Show Font" command for the same font works correctly.
    The thing happens on a SPARCstation with a Symbolics board under
    Genera 8.1 and CLIM 1.1.

    My question: Is there a way to make the fonts available for CLIM, a
    special format, or a special directory where these fonts must be
    located ?

    - Bernd Bachmann

This sounds line a bug which was fixed in CLIM 1.1.  Did you load
patches?  The bug had to do with an inconsistency in font naming
