Strange x370 messages

X3270 may give

Warning: Cannot convert string “-*-helvetica-bold-r-normal–14-*-100-100-p-*-iso8859-1” to type FontStruct

This is because some fonts are not available. On Ubuntu use the following commands

  • sudo apt-get install xfonts-75dpi
  • sudo apt-get install xfonts-100dpi
  • xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/
  • xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/
  • xset fp rehash

Then reboot.
