Problems displaying X-Fonts

If you are having response problems when running X11 apps such as ikeyman e.g.

Cannot load fonts for IMF.
Cannot create fontset.

Try changing your $LANG setting to C and then restart the application:

# export DISPLAY=
# export LANG=C
# ikeyman

If the problem persists and you are unable to correctly display your fonts try copying the TTF files to your local Windows font cache and restarting the application e.g.

From: /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1/java/jre/lib/fonts
To: C:\Program Files (x86)\Xming\fonts\TTF

Note: You may have to create the "fonts\TTF" directories and also require Administrator privileges/

I am also unsure of the legal status of copying the fonts so you may need to check with IBM?
