Hello,

Has anyone got rxvt to correctly load the fonts you specify either via a
commandline, in .xinitrc or in the wharf file?  Even using commandline to
bring it up with:
%>rxvt -fn halvetica
will complain with:
rxvt: can't load font "courier" or rxvt: can't load font "halvetica".
Curiously enough, the the fonts in the title changes, but I don't know if
that reflects the fonts or not.

If someone has successfully configured rxvt to use your instructed fonts,
I'd appreciate it if you could share with me as to how you  did it.  I'm
running XFree86-SVGA, libs, 75dpi-fonts, 100dpi-fonts, devel, VGA16 all in
3.3.2, rxvt 2.4.8 all in rpms.  Thank you very much in advance.

With Best,
