You can configure fonts for your Mathematica account using UNIX commands so that you can run Mathematica without receiving font errors.

- Log into your Mathematica account.
- Open a new file called
**~/myxfsconfig**with your preferred text editor. - Make the contents of this file look exactly as shown below:
**#xfs configuration file for Mathematica Users****#D. Sweet (taken from xfs man page)****client-limit = 10****clone-self = on****catalogue****= /afs/glue.umd.edu/software/mathematica/current/SystemFiles/Fonts/X** **Close**and**Save**the file.- Issue the next set of commands from the command prompt:
**xfs -config ~/myxfsconfig &****xset +fp tcp/this.machine.umd.edu:7100 (substituting the host name of the machine that you are on)>****xset +fp rehash****tap mathematica****mathematica &**

You will need to use these commands each time that you want to use Mathematica.
