Bug Description

Hi,

Attempting to use xfontsel to find the 14-part font name (with the hopes of using this name to set this font as the default for Emacs), it appears that the font is not known to xfontsel. Similarly the font is not returned as an option by the Emacs `x-list-fonts' function.

Is it possible that the apt-get instillation did not properly register the 14-part font name with the X server?

summary: - does not show up in list returned by xfontsel, don't know 14-part font
- name
+ [pkg] does not show up in list returned by xfontsel, don't know 14-part
+ font name

This likely needs a day or two of debugging depending.

For fixing: once it's possible to rebuild the font, this is then likely to be relatively easy to patch; either in the source, or binary. And then an hour or so to confirm the fix works.
