- Known problems:

  1. emacs cannot find fonts
  1. afs freezing: probably needs update of open afs client as was done on lxplus
  2. kb broken in windows, only the number pad works, and none of the web clues fix the problem.


Emacs can't find fonts

  • emacs cannot find fonts
 ~ >emacs & > Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*" to type FontStruct
  1. afs freezing: probably needs update of open afs client as was don on lxplus
  • If you're on a windows machine you also need to install all the client font packs from the NX website.
  • (it's on the same page where you download the windows client)

Only the number pad works!

  • You can't seem to type anything, check the num pad, and it works
  • the keyboard mapping is wrong, probably
  • check what's in the server $HOME/.nx/C-<last-session>/options, if it says simply keyboard=pc105/en_US AND your local computer is not en_US then the local strings in your client are not set correctly.
  • follow the instructions here to fix it... but you'll need the client installed somewhere you have write permission!
  • if that doesn't help you, then probably the mapping is right in the client but there's something odd in the server, we're working on that.
