Fonts and ui buttons appear incorrectly

Article needs peer review

Question

From time to time when I run the Linux version of XSI the fonts and buttons on the UI and MCP do not appear correctly. How can I fix this problem?

Answer

This is due to Mainwin not refreshing the fonts correctly. Usually if you quit and restart XSI the problem will be corrected. If not you can open a shell and type the following:

 xset fp default 

hit enter then type

 xset fp rehash

hit enter again, after that XSI should start up correctly.


You can also add this command to your .xsi_x.x file as follows:

 if ( $?DISPLAY ) then
 /usr/bin/X11/xset fp default
 /usr/bin/X11/xset fp rehash
 endif
