How do I fix font errors?

If you are using Redhat 7.1, and are getting font errors when starting JUDO from an xterm, try this -

First, assuming you have already installed Sun Java 1.3.1_01 into /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_01

make a soft link like this, ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_01 /usr/java/jdk1.3

Now, make another link, ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_01/bin/.java_wrapper /usr/bin/java If you already have a link or file called /usr/bin/java, rename it java.old before doing this, just in case.

This fixes some problems you might have down the road with other Java apps.

Get a copy of the file symbol.ttf from a Windows PC or do an ftp search for it using or similiar.

Copy it to /usr/java/jdk1.3/jre/lib/fonts/symbol.ttf - make sure you convert the file name to lowercase.

Now, edit the file /usr/java/jdk1.3/jre/lib/fonts/fonts.dir

The first line is probably a 2 digit number. Edit this by adding one to it, e.g., change a 72 to a 73.

Now, add a new line to the bottom of the file:

symbol.ttf -urw-symbol-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-fontspecific

After all this, JUDO should work properly when executed as root.

If it still won't work for an unprivileged user, I have made it work by configuring sudo to execute java with root permissions.
NOTE: this user was using Linux Terminal Server and having trouble running JUDO as an unpriviledged user.

How do I setup JUDO for multiple users?

A kind JUDO user sent me a script that overcomes an issue with JUDO v1.2, it assumes a single user environment. The run/install script extracts a copy of JUDO to the users home directory if it is not already there and runs JUDO. If it is already there, it just runs JUDO. Get the script here.
