You can tell one X session to use the installed fonts with:
% xset fp+ /usr/freeware/lib/X11/fonts/misc
To make the effect permanent for future X sessions you probably have
to edit some files in your X installation. For instance, you might
include the xset command above line in your
~/.xsession file, or edit
to extend the default fontpath.
There are also several ways to extend your X search path. The
environment variables all affect resource file loading. The
easiest methods are to either create a
NetHack symlink in
/usr/lib/X11/app-defaults or to add code similar to this
to your startup scripts:
% export XUSERFILESEARCHPATH=
(The line wrapping above is for clarity; you can remove it and any
extra whitespace. If
XUSERFILESEARCHPATH is already set
we append the new directories separate by a colon, otherwise we simply
set it to the new colon-separated list.)
To install this package, go to the SGI Freeware site.
