excellent work - was looking for such detailed instructions for a long time for FreeBSD.
conky can't load font "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:size=12" but usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/bitstream-vera is available.
mruhe-s said:Hi all,
I have a problem with Conky. It's displayed but I cannot change the font and font size - at least it seems conky doesn't accept font/size changes. Here the error message:
conky can't load font "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:size=12" but
usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/bitstream-vera is available.
Any advice would be appreciated.
mruhe-s said:[SOLVED] seems to be a bug when using "make install clean" XTF will not be compiled when selecting XTF support. Open the "Make file" and change to XTF = On. Then this option will be compiled and conky can be configured with other fonts/font sizes.
Reaction score: 4

Ctrl, Alt and the Window key are not recognized. Did I miss something?
Seems that Xorg.conf is configured correctly.
Thanks for sharing any idea.

mruhe-s said:Hi taz,
no, I didn't have crunchbang 11 on another Partition where these keys are working fine.
I also added setbkdmap with the parameter used by Xorg.conf into the autostart file.
but no success so far. When using the termnial terminator at least Crtl + keycode is working.
Next step what I will check is xmodmap - hope to be successful there. It's strange but I am using FreeBSD since a long time - version 4.5 - and your excellent tutorial for openbox inspired me to apply this window manager.
If helpful I can share all my config files.
I am an idiot ....playing around with ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml
didn't realized while copying a number of lines around that </keyboard> was already set and I copied just thereafter...mystery of vi.... be careful ;-)
Now everything is working as expected...
BJwojnowski said:ok. I have done as directed and everything worked. I still have not modified or set options in /usr/local/etc/portmaster.rc. I have not looked at the sample file yet. I am elated that everything installed as advertised. Looking ahead a little I have seen that the hal option should be disabled in all packages since DEVD is going to be used. My question is "How do I find out which files have a hal option and which do not?" I am now going to look at portmaster.rc.sample. Thank you for this fairly straightforward set of instructions.
# make install clean
# make config

portmaster x11-servers/xorg-serverand it successfully installed 23 to 25 ports. The problem IS ran into somewhere along the way it became caught in an endless loop:
portmastergave several installation options and I vaguely remember tk84 dependency being given as an option. Is there an easy way to try to run
portmaster x11-servers/xorg-serverfrom the beginning so I can be given the option menu again or do you have a better way to do it?
