xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X
[ -display host:dpy
] [ -m
] [-w width
] [-fn pattern
xlsfonts lists the fonts that match the given pattern. The wildcard character
"*" may be used to match any sequence of characters (including
none), and "?" to match any single character. If no pattern is
given, "*" is assumed.
The "*" and "?" characters must be quoted to prevent them
from being expanded by the shell.
- -display host:dpy
- This option specifies the X server to contact.
- -d host:dpy
- Same as -display host:dpy.
- Lists some attributes of the font on one line in addition
to its name.
- Lists font properties in addition to -l output.
- Lists character metrics in addition to -ll
- This option indicates that long listings should also print
the minimum and maximum bounds of each font.
- This option indicates that listings should use multiple
columns. This is the same as -n 0.
- This option indicates that listings should use a single
column. This is the same as -n 1.
- -w width
- This option specifies the width in characters that should
be used in figuring out how many columns to print. The default is 79.
- -n columns
- This option specifies the number of columns to use in
displaying the output. By default, it will attempt to fit as many columns
of font names into the number of character specified by -w
- This option indicates that the output should be left
- This option indicates that xlsfonts should do an OpenFont
(and QueryFont, if appropriate) rather than a ListFonts. This is useful if
ListFonts or ListFontsWithInfo fail to list a known font (as is the case
with some scaled font systems).
- -fn pattern
- This option specifies the font name pattern to match.
, X Logical Font
- DISPLAY must be set to get the default host and
display to use.
Doing ``xlsfonts -l'' can tie up your server for a very long time. This is
really a bug with single-threaded non-preemptable servers, not with this
