Displaying international characters in Firefox (installing unicode fonts in fontconfig)

Using unicode fonts is the easiest way to properly display hindi, arabic, hebrew and other non latin languages. We install the unicode fonts in a local directory and then tell fontconfig to look in that directory. Edit /etc/fonts/local.conf


/usr/ias/share/fonts/fc
Then tell fontconfig to rehash it's tables
[root@host] # fc-cache
Check that your new font is there
[root@host] # fc-list |grep

Xnewt dying on SunRay 3.0

After modifying gdm.conf we noticed that Xnewt would not start properly on occassion. Xnewt was not ignoring the vt[0-9] command line option sent to X to specify a virtual console on which to run. We removed this from the command line sent to Xnewt and renamed Xnewt to Xnewt.sun
pushd /usr/X11R6/bin
mv Xnewt Xnewt.sun
echo Xnewt
#!/bin/sh

XFIX=`echo $@ |sed -e's/vt[0-9]*//'`
echo `date`: ARGS=$@ XFIX=$XFIX >>/var/log/Xnewt

exec Xnewt.sun $XFIX -fp unix/:7100
EOF
chmod 755 Xnewt
popd
