Hi all,
 
we want to use x2go for a custom application that requires additional fonts.
We installed the x2go-server on a CentOS 7 machine from EPEL repository and the x2go-client on Windows 7 (32-bit).
When starting a session with xterm as application, that works as expected. But when starting a session with our custom application, it complains about not finding the fonts.
We realized that in the x2go session, the font path as reported by "xset -q" is:
Font Path:
  /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/
 
But when opening a PuTTY session with X11 forwarding the font path as reported by "xset -q" is:
Font Path:
  fonts/misc/,fonts/TTF/,fonts/OTF,fonts/Type1/,fonts/100dpi/,fonts/75dpi/,fonts/cyrillic/,fonts/Speedo/,fonts/terminus-font/,built-ins
 
For the latter case, we used VcXsrv as X server on the Windows PC, an our custom application works.
 
It seems that X11 forwarding in PuTTY uses the font directories of the X server on the Windows PC, but x2go uses the font path on the x2go-server (CentOS machine).
How can we change this behaviour? Setting font path with e.g "xset fp+ fonts/100dpi/" returns:
xset:  bad font path element (#97), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax
 
regards, Ralph
