Re: ScrollWM - floating WM with scrolling workspace (and tiling!)

What does the following command return

xlsfonts -fn "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-70-*-*"

Re: ScrollWM - floating WM with scrolling workspace (and tiling!)

... could you install xlsfonts and try again.

Re: ScrollWM - floating WM with scrolling workspace (and tiling!)

I don't think this is the right window manger for you.

Re: ScrollWM - floating WM with scrolling workspace (and tiling!)

installing xlsfonts could not have resolved the problem - it was only a step in diagnosing the realy problem for which I was suspecting a font cache issue.

My previous comment was because it didn't seem like you were really participating in the troubleshooting process, and if you won't participate in the process, then there is nothing I can do from here - at that point scrollwm either works for you or it doesn't.
