PCF fonts compressed with the "compress" command don't work in Secure Global Desktop (Doc ID 1283664.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 08, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 4.41 to 5.1 [Release 4.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A new pcf font or font directory containing pcf fonts, which has been compressed with the "compress" command (e.g. "myfont.pcf.Z"), has been added to Secure Global Desktop, but this font does not appear to be accessible by X applications launched from Secure Global Desktop (SGD). This result in X applications not being able to use these new fonts.

Details on adding fonts to SGD can be found at:
