Some fonts are not correctly displayed

The following font:

-urw-nimbus mono l-regular-r-normal--12-87-100-100-p-70-iso8859-1

is not correctly displayed in a NoMachine custom application session running in a floating window.

This problem can be reproduced by using xterm:

xterm -fn "-urw-nimbus mono l-regular-r-normal--12-87-100-100-p-70-iso8859-1"

This font is usually located at:



A temporary workaround can be to remove the problematic font from the font path.

So, if the problematic font is located at: /usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1/, run in the terminal the following command before starting the application:

xset fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/,built-ins"

The font path can be set also in the NoMachine node configuration file, node.cfg. To do that, change the DisplayAgentExtraOptions and DisplayServerExtraOptions keys as it follows:

DisplayAgentExtraOptions = "-fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/,built-ins"

DisplayServerExtraOptions = "-fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/,/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/,built-ins"

Then create a new session,  disconnecting/reconnecting an existing one doesn't have effect.
