Configure Mathematica Fonts for UNIX
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
- 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
You will need to use these commands each time that you want to use Mathematica.
