11.6.2 Problems with fonts

Running under X11, LispWorks may print a message saying that it is unable to open a font and is using a default instead. The environment will still run but it may not always use the right font.

LispWorks comes configured with the fonts most commonly found with the target machine type. However the fonts supplied vary between implementations and installations. The fonts available on a particular server can be determined by using the xlsfonts(1) command. Fonts are chosen based on the X11 resources. See X11 resources for more information.

It may be necessary to change the fonts used by LispWorks.
